Reports surfaced earlier today that the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH) had shifted into emergency mode due to the spike in Covid-19 cases. Hours later the hospital issued an official release saying the reports are false but that they have activated the second phase of their Covid-19 response. The release goes on to say, quote, “the second phase of our COVID-19 response was activated so as to increase space to accommodate additional emergency patients. Our resources are constrained but we are able to deliver services as the National Referral Hospital. If COVID-19 admissions and trauma cases continue to increase, there may be a reduction of services and eventually the activation of full Emergency Mode.” End of quote.
