Dear friends and colleagues,
First and foremost, our hearts and thoughts go out to all who have been affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.
HCC and its Live Well Community Health Centers are focused on the health and well-being of our patients, community, employees, and partners. We strongly support the efforts of local health officials and government leaders working to contain the spread of the virus, and have implemented these precautions throughout our organization and Live Well Centers:
We have increased the frequency of cleaning and sanitizing procedures at all offices and Live Well Centers.
We have prepared our teams to respond quickly to developments that could impact our organization and clinic, leveraging the considerable insights we have received from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), our insurance companies, and federal and state governments.
We are closely monitoring the ongoing public response to this situation in each of our communities, assessing how local and federal agencies may affect our patients, employees, and other community stakeholders, in order to minimize any disruptions to our programs and clinical service offerings.
We have updated contingency plans for patients who may present with flu-like symptoms or who may have been exposed to COVID-19.
Employees who become symptomatic will remain at home and follow the same guidelines established for our patients.
We will provide frequent updates on the status of our organization and Live Well Centers via email,
and social media platforms as we continue to monitor the course of this pandemic.
