FOUR elderly residents had to be moved from the near-new Baralaba Hospital to allow for electrical repair work.

The $11million hospital, opened in November 2011, has been experiencing electrical surges which forced it to close on Tuesday.

A surge filter was installed on the main switchboard leaving the facility without power.

The Queensland Ambulance service was advised and precautions were taken for emergency medical cases to be diverted to the most appropriate hospital.

The hospital is also home to four elderly residents. Two were taken home by family for the day, while two others were transferred to Mt Morgan and Biloela hospitals for two nights.

Queensland Health offered no response to queries from the Central Telegraph relating to the patients.
