The hospital along Mercy Drive Northwest in Canton is currently running on generator power, due to a city power substation issue, according to a Tuesday afternoon statement from a Cleveland Clinic Foundation spokesperson.
American Electric Power workers were on-scene as of 3:15 p.m., according to a follow-up message from the spokesperson. Repairs were expected to continue through the evening. The hospital expects to continue running on generator power until Wednesday.
“Inpatient care continues uninterrupted, but out of an abundance of caution, we have cancelled all surgeries Tuesday and Wednesday and the hospital is on full diversion,” reads the statement. “We appreciate the dedication of our caregivers who are continuing to provide the very best care for our patients.”
