Local hospital issues request


Emergency department physicians across the state are caring for a large volume of patients, including those with urgent COVID-19 complications and other serious ailments, including trauma and broken bones. Although you always have the right to visit the emergency department of your choice, officials with Franciscan Health are asking for your help to preserve critical emergency department staffing resources by asking patients experiencing mild COVID-19 symptoms to contact their primary care physician, an urgent care clinic, or community site to receive COVID-19 testing versus the emergency room.
