Pneumatic tube system offline Jan. 12–13

The entire pneumatic tube system on the UI Hospitals & Clinics campus will be taken offline for approximately eight hours starting at 8 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 12. The system is expected to be operational no later than 4 a.m. on Monday, Jan, 13. This shutdown is to facilitate an air handling replacement project.

UI Health Care–Iowa River Landing is not impacted by the shutdown. Each tube station will communicate system status and announce when it becomes operational.

Nursing, material services, pathology, pharmacy areas have been involved in the planning. Several critical areas will receive a Voalte message when the system is operational at the end of the shutdown.
