HSHS Announces Early Closure

The city manager in Eau Claire wants the state to investigate the Chippewa Valley’s hospitals sooner-than-expected closing.

HSHS yesterday said Sacred Heart Hospital in Eau Claire will close next Friday, instead of the original closing date in April. Eau Claire City Manager Stephanie Hirsch says she wants the state to look into the ‘circumstances of the closure.’ She says she is shocked by the ‘lack of corporate responsibility.’ HSHS announced that it is closing Sacred Heart, as well as St. Joseph’s Hospital in Chippewa Falls because of costs and industry pressures.

HSHS yesterday said it is closing Sacred Heart early to maintain ‘safe and quality care.’
