ROCK ISLAND, Ill. (KWQC) - Trinity Rock Island main entrance will reopen on Dec. 30 at 5 a.m.

Crews have since cleared the area and made necessary repairs following a sprinkler malfunction early Monday morning.

No one was hurt from the water damage and minimal disruption was caused to patient care. Hallway detours were put in place to help everyone avoid the affected area.

“Despite the water damage, we were able to quickly reopen the main entrance of Trinity Rock Island,” says Robert J. Erickson, president and chief executive officer of UnityPoint Health – Trinity. “I would like to extend my gratitude and thanks to our team members in facilities, security and environmental services for their quick action and hard work. I’d also like to thank our patients and visitors for their patience and understanding.”

Hospital leaders believe the recent string of cold weather days may be to blame.
