Medical center doors locked after 'vague' bomb threat

ROSEBURG, Ore. - Mercy Medical Center doors remain locked after a bomb threat Monday morning.

The "inferred bomb threat" came in around 6 a.m.

"While the information was vague, Mercy staff contacted police and it was decided to err on the side of caution and take the threat as credible," said Kathleen Nickel, Mercy's communications director.

Roseburg police and Mercy staff conducted a sweep of the hospital and did not find anything of concern, Nickel said.

Normal operations had resumed by 8 a.m., but all doors are locked and patients are being asked to use the north entrance.

The hospital said patient care was not interupted by the bomb scare.
