Adventist Health Clear Lake's PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoff Update

PG&E has announced a confirmed public safety power shutoff starting very early on Wednesday, October 9. Rest assured, Adventist Health Clear Lake is ready. Once PG&E shuts the power off, the hospital has backup power generators ready to go and will continue to care for our community.

Our Emergency Department, Women’s Care, Medical Surgical, and Intensive Care units will continue to support all who are in need of inpatient and immediate care. However, elective surgeries will be postponed, and clinic and outpatient offices will be closed during the power shutoff. During the power shutoff, most offsite services will be closed including physical therapy, physician offices, mammography, sleep lab, and other outpatient services. Adventist Health Clear Lake staff will reach out to patients to reschedule appointments, tests and procedures as soon as possible following the outage.

We are working closely with our community partners and will continue monitoring all information from PG&E as well as our local emergency response team and will continue to update you as we know more. This situation is evolving and things can change rapidly.
At this time, make sure to prepare yourself and your household in the event of a power shutoff. Gas up your vehicles, have cash on hand, have adequate water and non-perishable foods, make sure prescriptions are filled, and make sure you have a plan for backup power for medical devices such as ventilators.

Updates will be posted here on our website and on our Facebook page as information becomes available.
