HAMHWE Receives Bomb Threat

Nationwide many schools and medical facilities have received bomb threats Hayward Area Memorial Hospital & Water’s Edge is one of these facilities. We are working with Sawyer County Sheriff’s Department and they are working with the FBI.

Because this is a nationwide threat we believe the likelihood of a serious event is reduced, but we are taking every necessary precaution to protect our patients, residents, tenants, family members and staff.

All appointments have been cancelled for the remainder of the day in every area including Urgent Care, Orthopedic Services, Radiology, Rehab Services and Infusion Therapy. The Essentia Clinic-Hayward and Northlakes Clinic are also closed. We are on lock down, but patients with an emergent need should present to the front door of the hospital, all other individuals will not be permitted to enter.

Additional information will be provided as available and when clinic services resume.
