Surgeries and doctors’ appointments were canceled at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Woodland Hills because a water main break left the hospital without service, ABC7 reported.
The main break happened Saturday night. Hospital officials told the station they are not evacuating current patients and not closing the emergency room, but regular primary care appointments and surgeries scheduled for Monday will have to be rescheduled.
The hospital, at 5601 DeSoto Ave., issued a statement about the water main break.
“Due to a broken main waterline, there is currently no running water at the Kaiser Permanente Woodland Hills Medical Center,” the hospital stated. “Emergency water supply measures have been put in place that include providing safe water in all areas of the medical center.
“Because it is not clear when the repair will be completed and running water restored, all primary care appointments are canceled for tomorrow, Jan. 20. Additionally, all surgeries have also been canceled for tomorrow. However, the hospital’s emergency department and urgent care will remain open.”
Patients who have questions can call Kaiser at (833) KP4-CARE.
