Froedtert & MCW announce closure of Mequon Health Center Urgent Care due to impact of Covid-19
MEQUON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin health network have announced the closure of the Froedtert & MCW Mequon Health Center Urgent Care, effective Feb. 1.
Froedtert cited the "ongoing effects and impact of Covid-19 on the health network" as the reason for its closure.
“An unprecedented number of our own staff are being affected by the recent COVID-19 surge, which requires us to reassign staff across our health network, resulting in the closure of our Mequon Health Center Urgent Care,” said Cathy Jacobson, president and chief executive officer of Froedtert Health. “While our health network continues to experience record-setting admissions and hospitalizations due to COVID-19, we remain committed to Mequon and the surrounding communities and will continue to help manage the health care needs of our patients, staff and community.
The Froedtert & MCW Mequon Health Center will remain open.
Urgent care locations in Menomonee Falls, New Berlin, Oak Creek, Wauwatosa and West Bend also remain open.
