COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Dorn VA Hospital in Columbia was without air conditioning for several hours Monday afternoon into Tuesday.

A spokesperson for the VA says the hospital administration is aware of the problem and repairs were made.  

At approximately 15:30 pm on Monday, September 25, 2017, Dorn experienced an electrical surge from our main power generator station which caused one of the three electrical bus sections to shut off power to our chiller plant.  Engineering and local vendors worked to resolve the power loss to our chiller plant and Dorn is fully operational as of 3:15am. It has not been determined yet what exactly caused the outage as we continue to investigate the cause of the surge.  There were no immediate patient care issues during the outage.
