It seems that this happens fairly regularly according to the Great Falls Tribune.
Karen Jepp was the fifth pregnant woman transferred to Benefis this year because of neonatal care unit shortages in Canada.This is just more evidence that Government run healthcare will produce shortages, inefficiencies and reduce the quality.
If you are interested in helping the Jepp family with their quadruplets, they have a website where you can donate to help them out with their beautiful new additions.
UPDATE: I found this article from the BBC with this quote:
A medical team and space for the babies had been organised for the Jepp family at the Foothills Medical Centre in Calgary but several other babies were born unexpectedly early, filling the neonatal intensive care unit.
Health officials said they checked every other neonatal intensive care unit in Canada but none had space.
The Jepps, a nurse and a respiratory technician were flown 500km (310 miles) to the Montana hospital, the closest in the US, where the quadruplets were born on Sunday.
