June 13, 2013 -- St. John Broken Arrow hospital will reopen effective immediately in response to the City of Broken Arrow’s water testing showing no contamination. St. John Broken Arrow is fully operational and available to receive patients in all areas. Elective surgeries for Thursday have been rescheduled. 


“As a result of concerns with potential water contamination from Tuesday’s water main break, St. John Broken Arrow made a voluntary decision Wednesday to temporarily discontinue operations,” said David Phillips, St. John Broken Arrow chief executive officer. “Patient safety is our highest priority, and we believe taking these precautionary measures was the right thing to do. We are fortunate that our patients were efficiently transferred to other St. John hospitals.” 

As part of its operational process, St. John Broken Arrow is replacing all water filters and flushing all water systems. All patient rooms were cleaned overnight with purified water.
