“Hospitals around the country and throughout the state are experiencing a sharp decrease in appointments due to social distancing and sheltering-in-place guidelines. Our goal is to continue to meet the needs of our community while doing our best to preserve our resources,” said Rachelle Schultz, EdD, Winona Health CEO.
“As we anticipate and prepare for the projected increase in patients based on what our colleagues in other locations have or are experiencing, we’re also encouraging staff affected by this change to rest in preparation for what may be to come,” Schultz said. “Our community’s support during this challenge has touched all of us. Our fellow community members can be assured that our staff is prepared to care for them and that we will get through this together.”
