At San Luis Care Center, residents are – and have always been – our highest priority.
We are working closely with the Colorado Department of Health, the Agency for Health Care Administration and the local health department and following the guidance they provide. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States, we have been following the latest guidelines, from both state and federal authorities, including the CDC.
Our primary concern is for the health and safety of our residents, nursing staff and other care providers. They are on the front line of this unprecedented outbreak. Our staff is trained in the proper use of PPE and are following all relevant guidelines in infection control. Our associates are the true heroes, and I am amazed by them each and every day as they show up to care for the residents as they would their own family members.
As of June 19, here is the latest regarding COVID-19 in our facility:
We will continue to work closely with the Colorado Department of Health, the Agency for Health Care Administration and the local health department and follow the guidance they provide, along with guidelines offered by CMS and the CDC. Both the state and local health departments have been extremely supportive. We are thankful for their partnership and support. We are also grateful for the outpouring of love we’ve received from the San Luis Valley community.
Patrick Morden, Executive Director
