Along with two hospitals in Allegheny County, Washington County 911 confirms a bomb threat was called into Monongahela Valley Hospital.
They are also were not accepting patients as a result and that precaution also has been lifted.
Allegheny County says that all the calls came from the same number, each time saying there was a bomb inside the establishments.
The number was identified as having a Maine area code, but that doesn’t mean the calls originated there.
Allegheny County Detectives said they worked through the night and will seek help from their federal partners.
