Updated January 15, 2018 – Missouri Baptist Medical Center and affiliated campuses will move to 10-digit dialing effective March 9, 2018. The following locations will transition beginning at 8 p.m. March 9. To allow adequate time for testing, the system is scheduled to be out of service until 5:30 a.m. March 10. Plan ahead to implement down-time procedures during this period.
MBMC campus – All buildings
BJC Medical Group offices on affected campuses
MBMC will soon be changing how we dial our phones – by moving to a 10-digit dial system (area code plus seven-digit number). Here you can find announcements, schedules, and other information about how this change affects you and what you and your team need to do to be prepared.
Changing to 10-digit dialing will provide BJC and MBMC the capacity to continue to support ongoing growth and expansion. It will also create greater flexibility to adapt to new technology and accommodate anticipated external area code changes in the St. Louis region.
The key changes are:
- Dial area code plus full seven-digit number for all internal and external calls
- Five-digit and three digit extensions will no longer function
- No need to dial “9” or “9-1” for external or long-distance calls
