LMH Health reports death of patient diagnosed with COVID-19; death not thought to be direct result of virus

Yesterday morning an inpatient at LMH Health passed away. Though the patient was previously diagnosed with COVID-19, their death is not thought to be a direct result of the virus. 

We have no further information to share about the patient due to HIPAA. LMH Health is committed to transparency, especially during this pandemic. 

Our thoughts and prayers are with the patient’s family as they navigate this difficult time.
