Sewer line work at St. Charles Medical Center this evening

Work to repair a 6-inch sewer line at St. Charles Medical Center in Bend will take place this evening. The pipe broke on Tuesday causing some delays to various elective surgeries. The leak was in the central processing area where surgical equipment is sterilized and cleaned. The work is expected to begin at 9 this evening and will affect 33 patient rooms for a short period of time while the repairs are made.
