As widespread power outages caused by vandalism continue in Moore County, the North Carolina Medical Society is looking to help our affected members.

With power out to businesses possibly stretching into Thursday, NCMS wants to remind you that we are a resource for our members.

Duke reported about 38,000 residences and businesses remained without power Sunday. It provides power to nearly the entire county. The outage hit Moore Regional Hospital, which switched to generator power. A hospital spokeswoman in a message to staff said the outage did not affect patients. “The Moore campus is safely operating on backup generator power and we have not experienced any issues or concerns,” Gretchen Kelly said. Kelly told The N&O on Sunday that the hospital has enough fuel on hand for several days for generator power and plans in place to obtain more fuel as needed.

If you have questions or concerns about your practice or patients, or help finding resources, please reach out to your NCMS Team.
