Parkview LaGrange Hospital reopens

LaGrange, Ind. – Aug. 28, 2023 – Parkview LaGrange Hospital has reopened and all services have resumed following an air conditioner outage.

To ensure the safety of patients and co-workers following a rapid rise in heat and humidity, the facility closed early Friday morning and all hospital inpatients were transferred to other facilities. Scheduled surgeries and procedures were rescheduled. The medical office building was not impacted and the Parkview Physicians Group clinics there remained open.

“We’d like to offer our sincere thanks to our patients, visitors and the rest of the community for their grace and understanding as we worked to resume services as quickly and safely as possible,” said Jordi Disler, president, Parkview Health North.

The hospital’s air conditioning unit was entirely replaced, and temperatures have returned to comfortable levels.   

“We certainly weren’t anticipating this outage, and teams from across the health system have been working around the clock to restore services,” said Greg Johnson, regional market president, Parkview Health. “The teamwork has been outstanding, and we are incredibly grateful for their dedication to caring for this community.”

The facility reopened at 7 a.m. today.
