Providence Regional Medical Center Makes Seamless Switch to Backup Power. Several thousand people were without power late Friday afternoon after a tree took out power lines in North Everett. PUD Spokesman Neil Neroutsos tells My Everett News crews rushed to re-route power and re-establish service to the hospital and then worked on restoring service to the rest of the area. Cheri Russum, spokesperson for Providence Regional Medical Center said their systems made a smooth switch to back up power and there were no known interruptions to operations in any areas of their facility during the outage. They are now back on regular power. The Snohomish PUD had no word on the exact number of people affected by the outage.
