DCH Regional Medical Center has been given the "all clear" after a bomb threat at Tuscaloosa hospital Wednesday morning.

Officers with the Tuscaloosa and Northport Police Departments investigated, and all buildings in the DCH Health System were locked down and unavailable to anyone except ER patients to enter.
The threat was cleared around 10 a.m., and normal operations resumed.
