Freon Leak Causes Emergency Room Shutdown At Suburban Hospital


A small freon leak in the basement of Suburban Hospital has the emergency room closed to new patients, hospital spokeswoman Ronna Borenstein said.

The leak occurred in the cooling system of a basement computer server room, Borenstein said. Fire and Rescue officials were on the scene of the hospital at 8600 Old Georgetown Rd., and many employees were waiting outside the building.

Borenstein said the leak had no impact on any of the patients inside the hospital, but the ER would not be taking in new patients until the scene was cleared.
