Watertown Regional Medical Center Shuts Down Urgent Care Facility

(Watertown) The number of COVID patients flooding emergency rooms has led one hospital to shut down its urgent care facility. Doctors at Watertown Regional Medical Center are switching some responsibilities. A spokesperson says emergency department patient volumes at the hospital are up by more than half. Nearly 91-percent of all hospital beds in Wisconsin are occupied during the resurgence of the virus. Medical Center officials haven’t said when the urgent care facility will reopen.
