Schneider Regional Medical Center on St. Thomas suffers catastrophic failure after Hurricane Irma hits island, according to an article on The Virgin Islands Consortium website.
The Schneider roof was destroyed. The hospital relocated all patients from the third and fourth floors to the second floor due to flooding caused by roof damage.
Samuel Topp, Government House’s deputy communications director, said the entire hospital had been compromised.
“One hospital official described the hospital as representing catastrophic failure,” Topp said. He said the hospital was evacuating the patient population to a United States Military ship.
