COVID-19 inpatient count down considerably

"We currently have approximately 20 COVID-positive patients in our four hospital campus system. This is down substantially from a high of about 120 patients roughly two months ago," says Lisa Brandenburg, president, UW Medicine Hospitals and Clinics. 

Hospital and clinic safety protocols established against COVID-19 are still in place, she said, noting that all staff are masked, the majority of staff have been fully vaccinated, and inpatient visitors are limited.

Patients should feel confident to seek elective care at UW Medicine facilities, she said.  See her downloadable video soundbites below.
