While hospitals across the nation are struggling to handle an influx of patients with COVID-19, the numbers and impact at Transylvania Regional Hospital (TRH) remain quite low.
In an interview Friday afternoon, TRH CEO and Chief Nursing Officer Michele Pilon said there was just one COVID-19 patient in the hospital and four people under investigation (PUIs) of being infected.
When asked about the 40 hospitalizations reported by Transylvania Public Health earlier in the week, Pilon said many of those people might be at Mission, Advent, Park Ridge or another hospital in the area.
