Patients wanting to go by ambulance to Truman Med Center's Hospital Hill facility at 2301 Holmes have been turned away during the overnights this weekend as the hospital has been reported "out-of-service" by KC-MO Fire department EMS service.
Patients suffering trauma (shootings- assaults- car wrecks- etc.) between my Metro monitoring hours of midnight to 7 a.m. had to go to trauma-rated facilities as Research- St. Luke's-Plaza- K.U. Med Center or North Kansas City hospital.
I've not yet been able to reach an authority at Truman Med Center who can and will tell me why Metro Kansas City's busiest hospital was "out-of-service" at least both Saturday and Sunday mornings.
