With hope that your loved ones continue to be safe, I am writing today with a significant update. With the expected surge of COVID-19 patients in acute-care hospitals and the rush for scarce beds, the issue of post-acute preparedness has become an urgent question:
Where will COVID-19 patients go to recover? Spaulding’s answer: Come here.
My management “command center” team has planned and worked steadily behind the scenes to repurpose an entire floor at Spaulding Hospital Cambridge—known for its excellence in complex care—into what is now a
fully dedicated, 60-bed Spaulding COVID-19-capable unit
The 24/7 commitment of our clinical care teams and staff to ensure the safest transformation of that space—both for our existing patients and incoming COVID-19 patients—was nothing short of remarkable. This is the kind of decisive action and urgent investment that is needed every day now, with your continued help.
