With patient volume down at Clinton's Warner Hospital, leadership indicates they are excited to have surgery procedures resume and patients starting to return for doctor visits.
As the hospital welcomes patients back to their facility, CEO Paul Skowron tells Regional Radio News April volume was down nearly half and now the goal has to be to give the community confidence to return.
Patients returning are doing so cautiously but Skowron indicates they are showing they are not going to be slowed by the threat of the coronavirus. He indicates the hospital is demonstrating their commitment to safety through distancing measures and PPE being worn by their staff.
Skowron gives props to his staff for their leadership in being willing to come back and see patients. He indicates, initially there was some trepidation on their part but their attitudes changed as the hospital kept up with the latest in CDC and IDPH guidelines.
Skowron indicates the best way to keep up with everything that is happening as the hospital continues to resume service is by visiting their Facebook page.
