Fauquier Health is currently facing a temporary network outage due to an equipment malfunction. Our team is working hard to identify and fix the problem as quickly as possible.
We want to reassure our patients and communities that we remain focused on providing quality patient care. The hospital is still providing care for emergent and urgent cases, including emergency surgical procedures. At this time, elective procedures that can be postponed have been cancelled until the issue is resolved.
The following Fauquier Health Physicians Services offices have not been impacted and are still operating as usual: Fauquier Health OB/GYN, Family Practice at Bealeton, Urology, and Cancer & Hematology. The following offices are closed at this time: Piedmont Internal Medicine, Culpeper General Surgery and the multi-specialty clinics located at 550 Hospital Drive. Once the offices resume business as normal, we will update our websites and social media pages.
We thank our patients for their patience and understanding. Individuals needing to contact the hospital, including the operator or ER, can call our emergency phone number that has been setup to assist 540.359.8060.
