From reading this article it sounds like a lack of business might be why the hospital is closing; however the nursing home and outpatient services will remain. BD
The Mayo Clinic has closed its hospital in Arcadia, Wis. Officials said the static population, limited demand and the cost of upkeep prompted the decision to close the 100-bed Franciscan Skemp Healthcare-Arcadia Campus, according to a news statement on the decision from the Mayo subsidiary.
The hospital had two admitted patients per day and fewer than five emergency room patients, on average, according to Franciscan Skemp. Meanwhile, the facility requires up to $1 million per year for upkeep. Outpatient clinic and nursing home services continue at the location, a spokesman said. The regional system has also planned construction of a new clinic and is awaiting approval, he said.
