VP&S Bldg.: Temporary Steam Disruption, 7 p.m. Aug. 20 - 3 a.m. Aug. 21

Steam systems will be temporarily unavailable throughout the Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons Building from 7 p.m. on Tuesday, August 20, until approximately 3 a.m. on Wednesday, August 21, due to urgent repairs that the NewYork-Presbyterian Facilities team needs to conduct.

While the repairs are being completed, there will be no hot water, heating, sterilization, autoclaves, steam tables, or dishwashers available throughout the building. Eyewash devices and overhead emergency shower units will be functional, but will be supplied with cold water only. Accordingly, please consider limiting research operations that have significant potential for splash or face and bodily exposure during this shutdown.

For any questions, please contact Fred Arce, plant superintendent, at aa164@cumc.columbia.edu.
