Bellin Hospital loses power, some medical procedures rescheduled

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - A hospital in Green Bay is expected to get all of its power back Monday afternoon, after a transformer malfunctioned during the night.

Bellin Hospital said it had a brief loss of power.

Officials could not say what percentage of the hospital lost its electricity.

They said no patients were at risk, although some medical procedures had to be re-scheduled.

The hospital reported a small amount of smoke in the basement level, right after the transformer went out.

Fire-fighters were called, but they could not find anything burning.

Officials said most of the hospital’s electricity was restored by late morning, as hospital crews and engineers worked with the Wisconsin Public Service utility to get everything back on.
