Monday's monsoon storm caused major damage at the Phoenix VA Hospital.
Hospital officials say they are relocating patients from rooms within the Carl T. Hayden VA Medical Center, closing the hospital to new admissions and canceling some procedures due to storm damage.
More than 40 patient rooms experienced damage from wind and rain during the storm, according to VA Hospital spokeswoman Jean Schaefer
Schaefer said patients in the affected rooms were moved to other rooms.
The hospital is also transporting Veterans to other area emergency rooms.
The hospital experienced a total power failure, which affected all IT networks and telephone systems. Officials say emergency power systems performed as expected
VA crews are conducting a room-by-room survey to determine the extent of the damage and how it will affect hospital operations this week.
Schaefer said rooms which experienced water damage will remain unoccupied until remediation activities have been completed and have passed an inspection.
