UPDATE: A boil advisory issued by the City of Columbus has caused non-emergency and elective surgeries and procedures scheduled for Tuesday at the Wexner Medical Center to be postponed.

In an update from Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center Monday evening, the hospital said it has contacted those patients who had scheduled procedures.

All other patients with appointments at the medical center who have not been contacted by the hospital should arrive at their scheduled times, the hospital said.

The hospital said the boil advisory was issued as a precaution after the city restored water service early Monday evening.

There was no impact from the water main break on Ohio State East Hospital, Eye and Ear Institute, Stephanie Spielman Breast Center, or Wexner Medical Center’s outpatient locations in New Albany, Upper Arlington and other locations throughout the Columbus metro area, including outpatient surgeries or other procedures.

All other campus operations, including classes, will resume Tuesday at 7 a.m.
