Super Bowl LII to Impact Hospital Access in Minneapolis

Super Bowl LII is already impacting hospital access in Minneapolis, according to an article on the Care2 website. The streets surrounding the new U.S. Bank Stadium are already closed.

These road closures are making it difficult for patients to reach Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC), the biggest hospital in Minnesota. 

Meanwhile, HCMC is expecting a 10 percent increase in visits in the week leading up to and including the massive event.

HCMC staff are moving some operations off site, but officials are telling anyone who might need hospital services to prepare for longer travel time, especially as ambulances attempt to navigate closures.
