Goshen Hospital is experiencing a record number of coronavirus patients and a full Intensive Care Unit.

Goshen Health said in a statement Monday that the number of COVID-19 patients at Goshen Hospital is at an “all-time high” of 57, with more coming. The hospital had to cancel several surgeries Monday and some scheduled for later in the week due to a shortage of beds.

Goshen Hospital Chief Medical Officer and Infectious Disease Specialist Dr. Dan Nafzinger is calling the situation “critical,” saying that ICU beds have filled up and have had to send other patients in need of intensive care to other hospitals, something they may not be able to do for long as other facilities begin to fill up.
