Local Hospitals Look Ahead, Prepare for Patients

There are still plenty of question marks when it comes to the future of healthcare in the Chippewa Valley, but Eau Claire’s other hospitals say they are preparing for this month’s HSHS closings.

Marshfield Clinic yesterday said it has re-opened its urgent care facility, and more than doubled its labor and delivery beds in Eau Claire.

Mayo Clinic Health System says it too has been working to increase care in northwestern Wisconsin.

Both Marshfield and Mayo say they’ve been at the local job fairs for the people who will lose their jobs once Sacred Heart Hospital in Eau Claire and St. Joseph’s Hospital in Chippewa Falls close next week.
