ICUs seeing relief as COVID-19 pandemic wanes

[Fox 9 News, March 11, 2022] As COVID-19 hospitalizations continue to drop in Minnesota, the feeling in Intensive Care units is one of huge relief. And likely none more profound than at Mercy Hospital in Coon Rapids.

"It’s a total game-changer," Dr. Matthew Klee, the Mercy ICU medical director, told FOX 9. "It’s a breath of fresh air!"

Dr. Klee says Mercy Hospital has treated more COVID patients during the course of the pandemic than any other hospital in Minnesota. But in the past few weeks, the number of COVID patients in their ICU has dropped to zero – none. And they haven’t been able to say that since the pandemic began.
