BELOIT – According to a statement from Mitchell County Hospital Health Systems CEO, Jeremy Armstrong, "Mitchell County Hospital Health Systems (MCHHS) and all hospitals in the state of Kansas and surrounding region are experiencing peak patient volumes. Mitchell County has seen its cases of COVID-19 increase by 400 percent in the last two weeks. The hospital is making adjustments to help meet the need, however as current trends continue, the care needs will far surpass local and regional resources. As hospital beds in our state and region become increasingly unavailable, it has become more difficult to transfer patients in need of a higher level of care for any medical reason, not just COVID-related reasons."
