Repairs to operating rooms done at Vermont VA hospital

August 20, 2019 GMT

WHITE RIVER JUNCTION, Vt. (AP) — Vermont’s Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center in White River Junction once again has four functioning operating rooms.

The operating rooms were damaged by flooding in June of last year when a sprinkler head burst.

Three of the operating rooms were back in operation within a few weeks, but renovations to the fourth — the most severely damaged — have just been completed.

The VA used the needed repairs as an opportunity to build a state of the art operating room that is almost three times the size of the one it replaced.
