Power was restored at Mercy Hospital St. Louis Monday morning following a brief outage.
KSDK was first to report the news of the outage. The station reported that there were no evacuations but that elevators were not working.
A spokeswoman told Patch the problem was resolved in roughly a half hour, after going down at 11 a.m. Generators kicked in and there was no disruption of services.
The hospital system is no stranger to working in the dark. After hospital staff in Joplin remarkably evacuated the Mercy facility there due to the 2011 tornado which devastated the hospital, Patch was there with Mercy Hospital staff in Creve Coeur back in November 2011 for what's called Just In Time Training.
