Parkway Medical Center Thanks Decatur UtilitiesMay 9, 2011
With the recent storm damage Decatur area residents persevered under extremely difficult circumstances, which included the loss of power. It was expected to take weeks to restore power fully to all areas. In fact, Parkway was initially given a 5-7 day timeline to operator on generator power alone, but ended up having full power restored after just 24 hours.
The efforts to restore power in such a short time period were monumental. Parkway Medical Center expresses heartfelt gratitude to those who worked tirelessly to assist during this disaster. With countless utility employees working up to 18 hour shifts, the job has been massive. Thank you to the dedicated individuals who made a difference in the lives of so many.
