TORONTO - The emergency department of a downtown Toronto hospital remains closed on Wednesday because of flooding.
Officials at St. Michael's Hospital said Tuesday that it was caused by a burst pipe and that staff are working to fix the problem.
But until they do, the emergency department is closed to both walk-ins and trauma patients until further notice.
Patients who were in the department at the time of the burst pipe have been relocated to other areas of the hospital.
