Perham hospital-home takes in flood evacuees

Perham Memorial Hospital and Home received three nursing home residents from Eventide, Moorhead, Minn., yesterday and one hospital patient from MeritCare Hospital, Fargo, N.D., today as a result of evacuations taking place at both locations.

As flood concerns persist, Perham Memorial Hospital and Home continues its on-going communications with regional health care partners to update the availability of receiving additional transfers.

The Perham MeritCare clinic is delaying routine care appointments to create urgent care access for evacuees from the Fargo-Moorhead area. Patients will be contacted if their appointments are postponed.
