Columbus, IN, hospital reopens flood-damaged ER
Columbus (IN) Regional Hospital has reopened its emergency room nearly two months after the hospital was closed by flooding that caused more than $100 million in damage. Work continues on repairs from the June 7 flooding that forced the hospital to close, and officials do not expect a full reopening until late October. The emergency department is temporarily sharing space with the pharmacy and laboratory. The hospital does not yet have any operating rooms and inpatient care is not available.
