MHA Featured in Crain’s Detroit Business Articles on COVID-19

MHA CEO Brian Peters

Crain’s Detroit Business published stories the week of Nov. 2 that referenced the MHA and aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Crain’s referenced a conference call Gov. Whitmer had with the MHA Board of Trustees Nov. 1 in an article published Nov. 3.

“They're very worried — our hospitalizations are up," Gov. Whitmer said in reference to the concern expressed by the Board of Trustees.

MHA CEO Brian Peters also spoke with Crain’s Nov. 5 for a story on the exponential growth of COVID-19 positive cases and hospitalizations in Michigan.

"We have had over 2,000 inpatient hospitalizations from member hospitals,” said Peters. “At the current pace if the rise of hospitalizations continues over next few weeks we will be right back to the all inpatient high (of about 4,500) by Thanksgiving. It's a scary proposition. We are seeing hospital ER visits that are COVID-related double in the last two weeks, and that results in additional hospital admissions."
