The phone system at Delta County Memorial Hospital went out last night at 9:20. Hospital administration and department managers worked out an internal communication system using e-mails, personal cell phones, pagers, the nurse call pagers, and faxes to continue to operate the hospital. There was only one incoming phone line that was working 874-7681. If you are trying to reach Delta County Memorial Hospital please be patient and try again if you get a busy signal. The phone system is expected to be back up by 3:00 p.m. today, Friday, April 18th.
