Tomorrow or Tuesday we will have some important pediatric information. The chart below has been changed a bit. The source for most of my numbers is a wonderful site from Texas Health and Human Resources which improves almost daily. (https://dshs.texas.gov/coronavirus/additionaldata.aspx)

Scans Reveal How COVID-19 Can Harm the Brain

From Becker Hosp. Review:

1. Minneapolis-based M Health Fairview will close the emergency department at St. Joseph’s Hospital in St. Paul, Minn., on Dec. 30, according to the Star Tribune

The health system is closing the emergency department as part of cutbacks aimed at shrinking a financial shortfall that existed before the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the report. 

Health system leaders said St. Joseph’s Hospital will continue to offer inpatient treatment for COVID-19 patients and services for those with mental health and chemical dependency issues, according to the report. 

The changes come after St. Joseph’s ED was seeing an increase in the number of patients who were homeless and seeking shelter or had mental health and chemical dependency issues, leaders told the Star Tribune. The health system is addressing that population with new services, including leasing Bethesda Hospital in St. Paul, Minn., to Ramsey County, Minn., for conversion to shelter housing.
