If you were here at 5:15 p.m. on February 2, you undoubtedly knew about the broken sprinkler in the link between the main hospital and Medical Office Building (MOB). Within minutes of bursting, water from the ceiling pooled into the link, pharmacy, and physical medicine department. Although there was a definite odor in the air from rancid water in the pipes, there was no gas leak and it was business as usual the next day.
Thanks to everyone who responded, especially the Environmental and Plant Services’ Teams. Their speedy action has minimized water damage in the building.
The restoration work is almost complete, including water extraction, dry out of the drywall, decontamination, touch-up painting, and pipe insulation. Additional heating devices are also being installed in the link between the hospital and MOB.
