VIHA spokeswoman Anya Nimmon said that 1,290 of those increased surgeries will be performed in Nanaimo.
About 312 of those additional surgeries will be performed at the Seafield Surgical Centre under a pre-existing contract VIHA has with the centre, Nimmon said.
The extra 1,290 surgical procedures in Nanaimo will include 400 endoscopies, 45 hernia operations, 140 knee arthroscopies, 34 orthopedic foot and ankle surgeries, 93 shoulder operations and 578 additional pain procedures at the NRGH pain clinic, which will be able to operate an additional day every week.
"These surgeries and procedures were selected based on wait times and capacity in the hospital to do the extra volumes," Nimmon said.
Nimmon said she couldn't say how many of the extra 3,000 MRIs the province announced funding for would be done in Nanaimo.

She said staffing levels at the hospital haven't been affected too badly as the five staff members that had symptoms did not have them at the same time."There's no question that when you have an outbreak it will affect staffing, but we've been able to manage so far," Nimmon said.The Norwalk virus is out in the community and people have come to the emergency room with it, she

NRGH spokeswoman Anya Nimmon said construction of the perinatal wing space has forced the relocation of some services."It's been a kind of spin-off effect where one office has to move and then another office has to move - it's almost like musical offices, and of course office space is certainly at a premium," Nimmon said.She said the hospital could have better explained its plans to employees.
"At this point we're not going to stop the whole thing, we think that office is needed and that that's a good space to put it in," Nimmon said.

"The new emergency wing is physically beautiful and I think what will strike people the most is all of the natural light there is throughout the expansive space, which is unusual for a hospital emergency department setting," Anya Nimmon, VIHA spokeswoman, said in an e-mail to the News Bulletin.
