DENVER —  Denver’s Veterans Administration hospital has canceled all surgeries scheduled for next week.

The reason is so technicians can deal with an issue affecting the air handling system that services all seven of the hospital’s operating rooms. The system underwent an inspection Friday, and officials decided it needs a more thorough inspection.

Any critical surgeries will be moved to other hospitals in the city.
