McAlester Health Center Back to Normal after Power Outage

A power outage impacted McAlester Regional Health Center, around noon Saturday.

After about 7 hours, the power, internet and phone lines were all restored. Everything is back to normal.

Pittsburg County Emergency Management responded to a call around 2 p.m. and started diverting patients to Muskogee, Henryetta and Ada. Tulsa was made aware of the situation, but no one was severe enough to make the transfer.

Radiologists were reportedly getting files by email so they could treat severe trauma patients.
