Peak One Surgery in Frisco reopens after flooding last week
August 19, 2017
The Peak One Surgery Center in Frisco has reopened after flooding forced it to abruptly close down last week and cancel procedures for roughly 75 patients, administrator Michaela Halcomb said.
Most of those impacted were able to get their procedures done at the adjacent St. Anthony Summit Medical Center, while others simply rescheduled because their surgeries were not time-sensitive, Halcomb said.
The trouble began on the evening of Tuesday, Aug. 8, as steady rains breached the surgery center's roof, which was being replaced at the time.
Surgeries were done for the day, but staff members were still in the building and quickly started setting out buckets to collect the water. All medical equipment was moved out and none was damaged, Halcomb said.
"The replacement roof is completed as of yesterday, so we're all buttoned up," she said on Friday.
One of the center's three operating rooms will remain closed until the end of August because it was the site of the most extensive water damage, but procedures resumed on Friday.
