Peter MacKinnon says the figure includes a mother and a baby born just hours before the shift took place.
The movement of equipment and staff from the 47-year-old Colchester Regional Hospital to the new Colchester East Hants Health Centre has been going on all week.
Sunday was the day for all the patient transfers to the $184-million facility.
MacKinnon says there were no problems in the move.
He said patients are enjoying a facility that has more individual rooms, abundant natural light and a variety of other "dramatic improvements."
