The surging COVID-19 cases and the ensuing staffing crush on Cincinnati-area hospitals has Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center reaching out to help with some specific adult care.
The children’s medical center will take on UC Health overflow of adult patients to age 30 who have complex care needs, officials said Monday. “We can do so without compromising the excellent care we provide children,” said Dr. Patty Manning, chief of staff for Cincinnati Children’s.
“The number of adult patients we can care for will vary day to day, but caring for kids will always be our first priority,” she said.
