CONWAY, N.H. (AP) - Authorities say flooding has damaged the computer data center in a New Hampshire hospital, resulting in no access to electronic medical records.

Memorial Hospital in Conway says the water damage was caused by a frozen roof drain. It backed up water into the primary care practice and into the data center at its medical office building. The fire department shut off the water to the building as a precaution. The building also houses women’s health, diabetes, pulmonary, ophthalmology and optician services.

The hospital said Friday care locations were being relocated to other practices within the hospital campus not impacted by the water damage. The operating room cancelled elective surgeries, but was available for emergency surgeries as needed.

The emergency room and walk-in care center were still open. Chemotherapy and physical therapy appointments weren’t affected.
