UPDATE: 3:49pm

A pair of hospitals in Hearst and Kapuskasing  have suffered computer system breakdowns.

Notre-Dame Hospital in Hearst is even asking patients not to report unless you already have an appointment booked.

The Hearst Hospital are asking patients to remain home unless they have an appointment that was previously booked or are experiencing an emergency as outpatient service such as emergency, x-rays and the lab are currently unavailable.

The reason behind the issue is a mass computer failure.

Sensenbrenner meanwhile says their only issue is with the outpatient lab, otherwise emergency is open.

Sensenbrenner Administrative Assistant Kelly Kraby and Executive Assistant to the CEO Lina Gosselin were unable to give much info regarding the reason for the issues at this time.

However, the hospitals have stated that they will both be informing patients once their regular services return.
