War Memorial Hospital Sault Sainte

SAULT SAINTE MARIE, MICHIGAN   January 6, 2022  (LSNews)  War Memorial Hospital is currently experiencing a steady increase in patient volumes. “At this time, we are at capacity and so are many hospitals across the State” said Marla Bunker, CNO/COO War Memorial Hospital. The War Memorial Emergency Department will continue to see and evaluate patients, but wait times may be prolonged for non-emergent cases. All patients will be triaged upon arrival to War Memorial.

“We are seeing a record number of patients in our Emergency Department and many of these patients need additional care either as an inpatient at War Memorial or a higher acuity facility.” said David Jahn, President and CEO of War Memorial Hospital. “War Memorial is committed to aligning resources and continuing to deliver high quality care to our community. Now is the time for our community members to get vaccinated, wear a mask in public, practice proper hand washing and avoid large gatherings when possible” Jahn added.
