COVID-19 Update

As COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations continue to rise in our community, we’re very concerned what the future may bring unless we take action very soon.

Valley County Health System is vital to this community; however, the impacts of this pandemic are putting both our healthcare workers and our patients at risk.

Our hospital staff is challenged with taking care of very sick COVID patients as well as other illnesses and accidents that come through our doors.  The COVID-19 surge is upon us.  We have a loyal and dedicated team of men and women working here, but they’re feeling the strain.  Working in full personal protective equipment is not easy however, it is necessary in order to care for our patients.

We’re also very concerned about our availability to manage patients, whether they have COVID-19 or not. We have a limited supply of beds and resources and have experienced difficulties in transferring patients when necessary.  Many hospitals throughout the state are full or near capacity. 

If the numbers don’t slow down, we’ll be faced with extremely difficult decisions in terms of who gets needed care and who may have to wait.

So please, wear a mask, wash your hands frequently, maintain six feet of physical distance and avoid the 3 Cs (crowded places, close contacts and confined spaces). These preventative measures are important and can significantly curb the spread.

Please help us put an end to COVID-19 in central Nebraska.
