As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread in the U.S. and across the globe, I want to take a moment to let you know how we are responding to this public health emergency.
First and foremost, our number one priority is the safety and well-being of our staff, clients, families, and the communities in which we live and work.
We are assessing the situation daily, remaining vigilant, and following all recommendations from the World Health Organization (WHO), U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local authorities.
Please be assured that we continue to develop, update and share guidance with clinicians and all healthcare workers so they are fully informed on how to protect themselves and those they serve against transmission of the virus.
We will remain focused on the health and safety of clinicians and healthcare workers so they can continue to deliver safe and effective services at home.
Our organization has long been committed to a flexible workplace, and we have the technological, cultural and operational infrastructure to work virtually, should the need arise. We have closely monitored the COVID-19 public health emergency and increased safety measures that will help ensure both safety for all and continuity of services.
As we navigate this time of uncertainty together, I want to reaffirm you that we will remain informed and willing to assist our staff and clients with their needs. I hope that you and your loved ones are well, and we are here if you need us.
Zeida Perez, RN
Director of Clinical Services
