Henry Community Health is reaching out to local residents asking for their support as the hospital is facing a critical point with an aggressive influx of COVID-19 patients.

“We need everyone to understand how dangerous the current trends are as we are experiencing a dangerous rise in both the number of COVID cases and the number of COVID patients requiring hospitalization,” stressed Paul Janssen, HCH president and chief executive officer. “This alarming increase in COVID patients could make it difficult to care for patients who require hospitalization – whether they have COVID or need care for another serious health problem such as for a heart attack, cancer or influenza.”
