DMC: Heavy rain causes 'water intrusion' at Harper University Hospital

Hospital is still operating

DETROIT – Flooding was reported Thursday morning at the Detroit Medical Center's Harper University Hospital in Midtown. 

The DMC released this statement: 

Today's heavy rainfall affecting Metro Detroit has caused several areas of Harper Hospital to have storm water intrusion. Non-emergent operating cases have been canceled so emergent cases can be handled in unaffected DMC areas and diagnostic cases will be delayed. All other DMC operations are running normally. We regularly prepare for situations like this and have plans in place for responding to weather-related incidents.
