PHOENIX, AZ (3TV/CBS 5)-- The emergency room at Banner University Medical Center in Phoenix has now reopened after it was closed for flooding over the weekend.

Video obtained by Arizona’s Family showed a flooded emergency room after a pipe burst at the hospital on Friday.

Employees were seen walking 1 or 2-inch deep water inside the hospital, which is located at 12th Street and McDowell Road.

Flooded emergency room

The emergency room was closed over the weekend so crews could clean up the flooding, but the trauma center remained open. 

In a press release, the hospital said its team spent the entire weekend getting the emergency department up and running. 


“The team's work in restoring the emergency department at Banner – University Medical Center Phoenix in less than 72 hours was nothing short of heroic,” said Daniel Post, chief executive officer for the hospital.
