Description
While pre-planning and a cooperative community helped Ross Memorial Hospital avoid overwhelming their resources during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Emergency Department saw significantly lower numbers of people visiting due to public health measures in place to prevent COVID-19 spread also preventing other seasonal illnesses.

However, the hospital noted that those patients who did come for emergency care were often sicker and really in need, and they encouraged the public against waiting to seek emergency care.
