Saints Mary and Elizabeth Hospital officials are unsure when the south Louisville facility will re-open.
Tuesday’s storm flooded the building’s basement and damaged its top floor. All of the patients were moved to other hospitals and appointments are being relocated and rescheduled. The hospital’s Wound Care Center and outpatient rehab facility remain open.
Wednesday morning, Mayor Jerry Abramson said the hospital could be closed for up to eight weeks. Hospital spokesperson Leslie Dorris says no such estimate has been made.
“We actually have folks looking at the basement and looking at the facility and determining exactly how long it’s going to be. That number is not accurate at this moment.”
Dorris says a timeline for re-opening the hospital will likely be announced this week.
