Bloomington (WEEK) --- OSF St. Joseph Medical Center has been experiencing power outages since yesterday afternoon, but says they are not affecting care for patients.
A spokesperson with OSF Healthcare says the power first went out around 3 p.m. Saturday.
The hospital is running on several generators for now, and officials say it is enough power to keep the entire building running.
Officials believe the outages stem from an underground cable issue.
Ameren is on site working to resolve the issue, but until that happens, OSF is diverting emergency patients to Carle Bromenn Medical Center.
Eastland Pharmacy is also closed until power is restored, and there is no word on exactly how long that might take.
