MMH update

Margaret Mary Health COVID-19 Update: 2.14.22

This past week our number of hospitalized COVID-19 patients remained consistent with the patient volumes we experienced the week prior.  Unless there is a significant change in volume trends, our next update will be Monday, February 28.

Inpatient Care:   We currently have 23 patients on our Med Surg floor, with 3 of those patients in our Special Care Unit and 1 on a ventilator.  8 of our patients are Covid+ (positive).   Our overall percentage of hospitalized COVID patients who are unvaccinated continues to trend around 85%.  All our current hospitalized COVID patients are unvaccinated.

Testing:  The percent of patients testing positive for COVID-19 declined significantly, with 26.1% of patients (51 in total) testing positive, the lowest rate we’ve seen so far in 2022.    Those who need to be tested for Covid-19 should contact their primary care provider for an outpatient test to be completed through our lab or schedule an appointment at a local testing site through  If you have mild symptoms or had a known exposure to someone with COVID-19, self-testing at home with an over-the-counter test is also a good option for fast results.

Vaccination:  Vaccine appointments for everyone ages 5 and older can be scheduled Monday – Friday at the MMH Occupational Health and Wellness Center in Batesville at 812.932.5105.   Vaccine appointments can also be made Monday – Friday at the Margaret Mary Health Center in Brookville at 765.647.5126.  Walk-ins are also welcome in Brookville.
