For the second time in a year, Allen County Regional Hospital had to turn away patients because of internet connection problems.

ACRH was unable to send digital images for about five days because of a firewall problem somewhere in the national technology systems of Hospital Corporation of America, which currently manages the hospital and provides such services. 

The problems began the morning of Dec. 4, and continued through Dec. 9. Four patients had to be diverted from the emergency room to other hospitals because ACRH was unable to send digital images to its radiology service, United Imaging.
