DES PERES (KMOV.com) – Des Peres Hospital was fully operational during a power outage Wednesday morning.

Simone Valle, the communications director at the hospital, said the hospital was operating on backup generators from 7:30 until 10:30 a.m. She said the hospital was prepared for this situation because they have had drills in the past.

Even though the hospital was fully operational, it was requested that those undergoing elective procedures reschedule.

Valle said they worked closely with Ameren to get the power restored.
