Small suburban Oklahoma City hospital damagedMay 20, 2013 @ 7:26 pm
MOORE, Okla. (AP) - Officials say a tornado hit a small hospital in suburban Oklahoma City, but all the 30 patients inside survived.
Moore Medical Center spokeswoman Kelly Wells says the hospital was "pretty much destroyed" after Monday's tornado.
She said all of the 30 patients survived, as did all of the staff members at the 46-bed acute care hospital, which is southwest of Oklahoma City.
Wells says 13 patients were transferred to other facilities, though it wasn't clear if they were moved because of injuries sustained in the tornado or because of existing medical conditions.
Wells said all of the patients "amazingly" survived, but the rest of the building didn't.
