Due to the severity of the flu, children under the age of 16 are currently not being allowed to visit patients in Hopkins County Memorial Hospital. We are asking all families to make arrangements to avoid bringing siblings and family members to the hospital. By limiting hospital access to children, we are hoping to prevent and reduce the spread of the flu in our community. Thank you for your patience.

 

Emergency Room visits up, leading to lengthy delays

We are currently experiencing high volumes in the emergency room due to the number of individuals with the flu in our community. We apologize for any lengthy delays during your visit. We encourage all individuals that have a primary care physician to make an appointment with their physician for treatment. Please be patient with our staff as we do our best to provide care to the large volume of patients that need our services.
