St. Louis (KSDK) -- The water main that caused a mess on Kingshighway in front of Barnes-Jewish Hospital is fixed.

Barnes-Jewish Hospital's sub-basement was flooded, causing Queeny Tower to lose power.

The water was drained Thursday, but elevators were not working in the tower and power was intermittent.

The hospital expects systems to be restored Friday. One hundred patients who also had to be moved should be able to get back to their rooms.

No outpatient surgeries had to be rescheduled.

The hospital is accepting critical care patients from other hospitals.
