The COVID-19 pandemic has put a strain on everything, but hospitals have had a particularly difficult time dealing with the increased number of patients entering their facilities. Area hospitals were overflowing with people in need of serious care. Luckily, we were there to lend a hand. We helped push back against the pandemic by offering COVID-19 recovery centers in the form of our state-of-the-art Recovery Care Units. Patients with less-serious COVID-19 symptoms were brought to our center, where they were treated by our multidisciplinary team of doctors, nurse practitioners, rehab therapists, caregivers and dietitians. This allowed more space and resources for the frontline heroes who fought and continue to fight the pandemic.
We feel a commitment to service beyond just our center. In fact, we want to be a source of hope and dependability for the entire community and help people from all walks of life, not just the folks we help every day. The coronavirus pandemic, despite how difficult it has been for people not just in our centers but across the country, gave us the worthwhile task of fulfilling an important obligation to our neighbors and colleagues in need. We embraced the challenge in the same way that we embrace all challenges: with careful consideration, precise performance and a dedicated spirit. We are proud to serve all communities near and far, and we view this latest chapter in our story as an opportunity to renew our promise to uphold the highest standards of health and safety.
As the pandemic unfolds and new information comes to light, we are here to provide everyone with valuable COVID-19 resources as well as information about the state of our clinic and what we are doing to keep our patients healthy and safe. The coronavirus has added an extra layer of complexity and protocol to everything we do, but we remain committed to our mission to treat our patients with the utmost care and precision. Our latest initiative with the COVID-19 recovery centers represents another step in that process.
About Our Recovery Care Units
Our Recovery Care Units are unique treatment areas that give our patients ample space to recover from major procedures, like surgery. They are fully enhanced isolation units with private rooms and private showers, and they are specially designed to give people privacy as they recuperate. These advanced resources gave us the ability to bring in outside patients for less-than-serious COVID-19 treatment, keeping them out of the overflowing hospitals and in a secure, stable environment where they could receive the proper attention. Because our Recovery Care Units are so cutting edge, these new patients were quickly in and out, and they had zero contact with anyone living in our center. It was a win-win situation that gave us the chance to join the fight against coronavirus while also keeping our patients as the top priority. It’s all part of our mission to deliver expert care to the folks who need it most, and we’ll continue the fight wherever possible.
