A problem with the computer systems has forced the cancellations of services at Terrebonne-area health care institutions.

At Pierre Le Gardeur Hospital, all scheduled surgeries, scans and x-rays and appointments for outpatient clinic services have been cancelled. The problem has also made it impossible to schedule new appointments.

Blood tests have been cancelled at the CLSC Meilleur and CLSC Lamater.

The region’s Health and Social Services agency advises patients to check its website at www.csss.sudlanaudiere.ca or contact 450-654-7525, extension 0, for more information.
