OCH to Help During Power Outage

STARKVILLE, Miss. — On Sunday, June 23, Starkville Electric Department will perform maintenance for a main-line and switch repair starting at midnight. This maintenance will cause a routine power outage that will last approximately five hours.

OCH Regional Medical Center, in cooperation with OSERVS, will provide a space in the Medical Center’s Outpatient Waiting Area for those who rely on power for medical equipment, so they will be able to access electricity. Those individuals may use their personal medical equipment in this area. However, OCH makes no claims to the operational ability of this personal equipment.

Those wishing to use this service should enter the Medical Center through the Outpatient Service entrance beginning at midnight. If you require oxygen, please inform your vendor so arrangements can be made to meet your needs prior to the outage. Guests should prepare to leave the OCH premises upon restoration of power, anticipated to be at 5 a.m.

Neither OCH nor OSERVS is responsible for lost or stolen items during this scheduled time. If you have a medical emergency during the power outage, please report to our Emergency Department.
