ANNISTON, Ala. (WIAT) — The Northeast Alabama Regional Medical Center (RMC) is now caring for 16 patients who have tested positive for COVID-19, eight of which are being treated in the ICU.
The hospital held a town hall to address the rise in hospitalizations and cases.
In May, RMC celebrated the fact they did not have a single in-house COVID-19 patient for the first time in over a year. Last week, the health system reported only eight patients with the virus.
