Interior Health website back

UPDATE 4:30 P.M. 

The Interior Health website is back up and running after a weekend power surge caused damage to their systems. 

According to Interior Health they are still dealing with some computer program issues and technicians remain on site working on the problem. Communications Officer Grace Kucey says they hope to have all their systems fully functional as soon as possible this evening. 


The Interior Health website and computer programs are down across the board Monday morning after a weekend power surge caused problems.

“We experienced power surges over the weekend at the main data centre in Kelowna which resulted in electrical damage,” explains Communications Officer Grace Kucey.

She says all their computer systems are impacted, including their main website and some telephone systems. They are aware of the problem and have their technical crews working on fixing the issue.

Health services are still being provided.

As it stands they do not know or have an estimate on when the systems will be fully restored.
