DOH Experiences Power Outage Affecting Charles Harwood Complex
Due to a power outage that affected the surrounding area, there was a blowout of the Department of Health's (DOH) transfer switch. As a result, the DOH has no electricity to the Charles Harwood Complex, located on St. Croix. All staff were dismissed at 10am this morning, in which appointments were rescheduled as needed. All clinical items needing refrigeration were secured using alternate accommodations.
The Executive team walked the halls of the complex notifying/updating all staff and clients.
A technician has assessed and is repairing the damage to the transfer switch. The Department of Health anticipates resuming operations/services tomorrow.
We regret any inconvenience to our clients, the public and our staff.
