On September 19, 2013 Gila Regional Medical Center (GRMC) had an incident where a liquid containing a combination of chemical reagents used in the GRMC Lab came down from the ceiling of the Courtyard Café. The leak was isolated to the tray return area and did not affect any food preparation areas and no personnel were in the area at the time. The proper agencies were contacted and a safety zone was established.
It was determined that a drainage pipe failed, resulting in the leak. The reason for the failure is under investigation at this time. Although the Café was closed due to the leak, food services to patients were not affected. Clean up is underway and the Café is expected to resume operations tomorrow.
