Guthrie Lourdes Hospital has recently encountered challenges with some of its communications systems, resulting in disruptions to various services. Despite these hurdles, the hospital staff is diligently addressing the issues.

The hospital reports that phone lines at Lourdes practices were temporarily down earlier today, but have since been restored. However, employees are currently unable to access voicemail messages, prompting the hospital to advise patients against leaving voicemail requests or using the patient portal for urgent matters. Instead, patients are urged to call until their call is answered, to ensure timely responses to their needs.

As the Guthrie Lourdes team continues to evaluate the implications of these communication system challenges, patients with scheduled procedures or appointments have been advised to keep their appointments unless instructed otherwise by the scheduling staff.
