The coronavirus pandemic is causing a few hiccups with Allen County Regional Hospital’s switch to a lease under the Saint Luke’s Health System, but the process continues. 

Saint Luke’s officials have reduced travel to ACRH amid fears of spreading the virus, as the Kansas City area is the state’s hottest spot for infections. Some of those who have been working on the transition process have been diverted to help with the COVID-19 response.

The transition still is scheduled to take place at the end of May, and it’s too early to know if that timeline may change, the hospital’s board of trustees said.
