The hospital’s burn center will move to Lutheran Hospital in April and the trauma and burn programs will consolidate into one location, cardiac catheterization services will be moved to Lutheran Hospital’s Heart and Valve Center, Dupont Hospital, and Kosciusko Community Hospital, and transitional care services be ending in the coming months.
