Pioneer Memorial Hospital modified lockdown lifted; operations back to normal
Prineville, Ore. — The modified lockdown in place at Pioneer Memorial Hospital has been lifted and operations are back to normal. All entrances that are normally open to the public during business hours are open at this time and doors requiring caregiver badge access are functioning again.
The facility was locked down for most of the day Thursday after a caller made threatening remarks. Police contacted the caller and the lockdown was modified late that afternoon. St. Charles officials now feel it is safe to reopen all public entrances and those that require badge access.
St. Charles Health System thanks the public for its cooperation.
