Short power outage planned for Sydenstricker Building on Friday

On Friday, June 10, contractors for the Hybrid OR project will be connecting some wiring to one of the emergency transfer switches in the Sydenstricker (BI) building. This will cause a brief power outage of approximately 2 hours or less that will shut down all of the BI Elevators and some HVAC units in the Sydenstricker (BI) building. We will start at 10:30 p.m. and conclude around 12:30 a.m.

  • This outage will affect the Elevators and some HVAC units in the Sydenstricker (BI) building only
  • The outage will last approximately 2 hours or less
  • All BI elevators will be out of service during this outage (we will have signage on elevator landings that will say use BA & BP elevators during the outage)
  • Facilities will have staff on the patient floors during the outage
  • Some HVAC units will be down but will have very little impact on patient care
  • Hospital staff will be notified via the overhead paging system prior to the outage
  • Facilities team will check and make sure all systems are back in normal operation after the outage
  • If you need any assistance during the outage, please call 1-work (1-9675)
