UPDATE: Ozark Radio News was informed Wednesday evening around 5:15 PM that the initial information given to us on the roof collapse was wrong, and that a section of ceiling tile had collapsed. The story has been edited to reflect this correct information. We apologize for the error.
(West Plains) – Patients who go to the Burton Creek Walk-In Clinic in West Plains are urged to visit the main building for the rest of this week, after the ceiling on the north side of the clinic suffered damage after issues with the ceiling caused by ice and water from the winter storm this past week.
The internal ceiling collapse happened sometime over the weekend, and was discovered Monday morning. It is believed that melting ice had seeped through portions of the roof and had caused a number of tiles in the ceiling to become saturated.
At this time, the clinicians are practicing in the main Burton Creek building off of Alaska Avenue until Monday, when some of them will move to the south end of the clinic, which was unaffected. The clinicians in the north wing will be practicing at the main facility until further notice.
The repairs could take three to four weeks to complete.
