An inpatient rehab unit at Froedtert Hospital where patients go to recover from strokes, hip replacements, and other injuries, ailments and surgeries has been hit by a COVID-19 outbreak sickening at least 15 people as of Friday — including staff and patients.

The hospital in Wauwatosa tested the entire unit for the novel coronavirus last Saturday after discovering several people had contracted COVD-19, according to hospital spokesman Stephen Schooff.
