Carle schedules phone maintenance Saturday night

URBANA — Due to basic maintenance on phone lines at Carle Foundation Hospital over the weekend, some callers may experience delays getting through.

Beginning at 10 p.m. Saturday, primary phone lines will have limited service.

Inbound calls to Carle's main number, 217-383-3311, will be possible, but callers may experience busy signals and delays.

Cellphone service and the Internet will be fully functional.

The maintenance is supposed to be complete by 6 a.m. Sunday.

Plans are in place to ensure patient safety. A system has been established for emergency communications, and select patient groups, public safety agencies and area health care providers have been notified of possible delays in calling.
