Lake of the Woods District Hospital is seeking another two week extension to its 1-A crisis status.
The status gives patients in alternate level of care the first shot at a long term care bed when one opens up at either Pinecrest or Birchwood.
Director of Patient Care Leslie Brown says they currently have 16 patients waiting for long term care beds, which is the same, when the 1-A status was approved by the Northwest Local Health Integratin Network one month ago.
She says the 1-A status is due to expire on April 11th, but they are hoping to extend it beyond the Easter Long weekend.
Hospital CEO Marc Belcaen adds that they still haven't heard any word as to if or when Pinecrest will be able to open up 10 interim long term care beds.
