Looks like we're losing the hospital. Before you start bitching about local government ask yourself how many times you ran it down, or asked to have your family member transferred to Rochester or Austin.

Hospital isn't closing, just changing the types of patients that will be admitted there.  Typical medical surgical patients will take over the entire Austin campus and Albert Lea will become fully behavioral health oriented.  This may be a mix of psychiatric, chemical dependency or medical psychiatric care which would be patients with a primary medical diagnosis suffering from psychiatric complications that would make them not safe to care for in a general medical setting.  

It's frustrating all around since change is obviously difficult for staff and patients alike, and everyone has their own opinion of Mayo's motivations.  

I do actually believe the math and it checks out for people I am close to that 95% of what I need medical care for will still be right here in Albert Lea.

3. Austin isn't really that far. Although never was that impressed with their facility there. But that could be an entire conversation in itself lol. But the commute between Rochester and Austin is a little less painful than the Albert lea to Rochester one is. And as of right now there is a bigger population there.

4. Rochester is overrated

Try to tell either of these two points to a heart attack or stoke victim.

Just ask the parents of School Kids. Do they  trust what they were told by this same person?

Remember the wonderful School Calendar. Wasn't it slipped in even though it was voted down?

Do you suppose there will be a move from the mansion west of town closer to Mother Mayo(before property values drop?)

Hang on it's gonna be a bumpy ride.

2017 Job Loss
Fountain Industry 50 jobs
Streaters 70 Jobs
Hospital    ? jobs

Don't worry we can paint more streets with bike trails!!!

With ICU closing on Oct. 1st. the press release is disingenuous at best. It leaves people with the impression that the hospital closing will take years and that employees will just transfer to Austin.

That's a ridiculous spin. Its no longer a hospital if you can't admit anyone but a psychiatric patient.
