NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — All surgeries and procedures at Saint Thomas West planned for Monday have been postponed due to a series of water main breaks.
A portion of Harding Pike was shut down near the hospital as a result of the breaks in the area of Vine Court.
In a statement to News 2, a spokesperson for Saint Thomas West said, “In the interest of patient safety, we are obligated to postpone all surgeries and procedures that were scheduled for today.”
“We apologize to our patients and their loved ones for this inconvenience and are working quickly to reschedule,” the spokesperson added.
