Bellevue Hospital fully reopened on Thursday for the first time since it was evacuated on Oct. 31 just days after Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc on parts of the city.
 
Though the hospital reopened different areas over the past three months, it has now resumed all of its services and opened all 828 patient beds, The New York Times reports.
 
The evacuation was the first in the hospital’s history. The basement was flooded, fuel pumps for backup generators had failed and 300 patients were evacuated.
 
In the wake of the storm, elevators stopped working, water was not running and food ran low when the hospital decided it had to evacuate.
