Would this be in the form of reserve water supplies, water treatment equipment, something else?

Reserve. Hospitals, assisted living center, and skilled nursing facilities are required to have on site water for 72 hours and a contract for a 1 month supply with a 3rd party supplier (typically sysco). These are rules baked into medicare/state law.

Sounds like communism, imagine how much more profitable the hospitals could be without stupid useless regulations like this

Well, if we didn't have these regulations, the hospital will totally 100% pass on the savings to you! That's how capitalism works, duh! /s if that was needed

My favorite story on this topic is that when the sugar tax went into effect, my employer "made up for it" by increasing the price of a 12oz iced tea by $0.70 to offset the $0.18 tax.

Probably a combination of those and they probably hold off anything elective until water is fixed
