Description In February 2015, damage occurred to the main oxygen supply pipe feeding the University of Utah Health Complex. The pipe was physically examined, electronically scanned, and determined not to be at immediate risk for failure. Months later the pipe was again examined then secured per current construction standards. Leaders from Facilities & Engineering (F&E), Respiratory Therapy (RT), and Emergency Management (EM) then began a 16 month process to review back-up oxygen systems and plan for the repair.
