"We're heartbroken. We're overwhelmed." … the hospital staffers took out a full-page ad in the Minneapolis Star Tribune with those words in bold font and emphasized that "the situation is critical." "Our emergency departments are overfilled, and we have patients in every bed in our hospitals," they said. "This pandemic has strained our operations and demoralized many people on our teams." The ad was signed by executives at North Memorial Health, the Mayo Clinic, Fairview Health Services, Children's Minnesota and five other health systems.
