Water line break disrupts some services at UT Medical Center

Posted:
KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A water line break led to some service disruption at UT Medical Center Thursday morning.

A hospital spokesperson said a line that runs between two physicians' office buildings experienced a break around 7 a.m.

The break caused a water outage in three buildings on the hospital campus, including one impatient building that has a critical care unit. Team members in that building are following water outage procedures, allowing patient care to continue as planned.

Some outpatient procedures had to be rescheduled.

Crews were able to repair the break and restore water service Thursday afternoon.
