The 101-year-old Norwood Hospital is Norwood, Mass., has been closed since a June 28 after a flood and parts of it may have to be completely rebuilt, according to an article and video on the Campus Safety website.
Surveillance video shows flood water pouring through its doors, causing tens of millions of dollars in damages.
Downpours brought more than four inches of rain to Norwood in less than 90 minutes. Flood waters overtook the hospital basement and parking lot and damaged the HVAC and mechanical systems. The water also forced its way through drywall and the ceiling.
Because of the flood and a power outage, 170 patients were moved to nearby hospitals across the area.
According to an article on the Boston Herald website, emergency room patients were directed to Memorial Hospital in Attleboro or Beth Israel Deaconess Needham, while Norwood Urgent Care on Boston Providence Highway was open to walk-ins.
