LOVELAND, Colo. (March 8, 2022) – Banner McKee Medical Center experienced a power surge at 7:30 a.m. today. The power surge damaged control panel for boilers and caused boilers to go down, turning off heat to the facility.
The safety of our patients and our team members is paramount to us. Out of an abundance of caution, the hospital is currently closed to ambulance and walk-in patients through the emergency department. Emergency services are not available.
The nearest emergency department is UCHealth Medical Center of the Rockies, 2500 Rocky Mountain Ave., Loveland. The phone number is 970-624-2500.
In addition, patients who had been admitted to McKee are being transferred to Banner Fort Collins Medical Center and North Colorado Medical Center in Greeley.
Our facilities team has determined the cause of the power surge and are working toward bringing the boiler back online.
