11 May 2020 | Two buildings on the Adventist Health St. Helena campus were evacuated earlier today after an anonymous call falsely reported a bomb at the hospital facility in Northern California.

The false alarm shut down the hospital for over an hour. No explosives were found.

At 8:58 AM, a male voice, calling from an unknown number, contacted the hospital, mentioning multiple areas of the hospital that were in danger.

Bomb squads with bomb-sniffing dogs responded from the Napa and Solano County sheriff’s offices, according to Henry Wofford, a spokesperson for the Napa County sheriff’s office.

The Napa Valley Register announced that no bombs were found, and the all-clear was given at 10:18 AM.

Adventist Health has hospitals, clinics, home care agencies, hospice agencies and joint-venture retirement centers in both rural and urban communities, serving more than 80 communities across the western United States and Hawaii. The healthcare system is affiliated with the Adventist Church.
