STEUBENVILLE, Ohio - Officials have given an OK for business as usual at Trinity Medical Pavilion after a strong odor of gas led to an evacuation early Wednesday.
Patients and physicians from the Medical Pavilion were evacuated around 10 a.m. and all traffic was stopped from entering Trinity Medical Center.
A gas leak outside in the ravine down behind the pavilion that is not Trinity property was found to be the cause.
Just before noon, NEWS9 was told that all things were clear and operations were back to normal, including ambulance services.
No one was evacuated from the hospital, but all appointments were canceled for the Wednesday.
Keith Murdock, Trinity's Director of Community Relations & Development, said staff and patients were at no risk. The evacuation was precautionary.
"Early this morning we got word that a gas line was leaking east of the Medical Office building," Murdock said. "The gas company was notified and they came out and we did evacuate the Pavilion. We now have a team trying to locate that."
