This report summarizes utilization data for DCHA member health care facilities through May 2020 as the COVID-19 peak in April 2020 appeared to wane slightly. This pattern can be seen throughout the report with the exception of newborn and neonatal admissions. The graph below compares the percentage change for April and May from a January 2020 baseline.
Note: The January 2020 volume baseline was selected for pre-COVID impact baseline as earlier comparisons were influenced by Providence Hospital data and other time-sensitive variables. All three metrics (acute care admissions, emergency department visits, and ambulatory surgeries) show modest improvements.
