Doors Closed, Investigation Could Open

Doors Closed, Investigation Could Open

Eau Claire’s city attorney wants the state to investigate, and prosecute if possible, the CEO at HSHS hospitals.

City Attorney Stephen Nick yesterday sent a letter to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, explaining that HSHS abruptly closed its hospitals in Eau Claire and Chippewa Falls without enough notice. Nick says the state licenses hospitals, and he wants the state to do something so other hospitals in other communities don’t do the same thing. It’s not clear just which law Nick wants used against HSHS or its CEO. The hospitals closed last month because of cost pressures and the lingering impact of COVID.
