MUSC Children's Hospital loses power Wednesday evening

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Areas of the MUSC Children's Hospital lost power Wednesday evening after SCE&G had a power disruption which tripped a number of breakers at the downtown hospital.

A spokesman for the hospital said while the power disruption affected some areas, emergency power generators kicked in and will continue to serve those affected areas until a new transformer is installed Thursday evening.

Hospital officials say all MUSC power provisions are allowing for patient care to continue undeterred.
