(Batesville, Ind.) - During the unprecedented time of the coronavirus pandemic, it is important that the successes be celebrated. 

On Monday, April 6, Margaret Mary Health released one of the first clinically diagnosed COVID-19 patient from an inpatient unit. 

The patient is doing well and moving towards recovery at home after a prolonged battle, including spending time on a ventilator.

“It has been such an emotionally trying time for our team members, especially our inpatient nursing staff and providers. Helping a patient pull through and watching them be able to leave our hospital on their way to recovery provides so much reassurance and comfort for our team after several hard weeks,” noted Tim Putnam, President and CEO of Margaret Mary Health. “This was a big win for Margaret Mary and our community. It has helped restore positive energy and hope to the weary as we continue to battle this pandemic.”

Please call the MMH COVID-19 Hotline at (812) 933-5565 if you are experiencing symptoms and need guidance on when to seek medical care.
