A MESSAGE FROM ALYSSA TALLO
EXECUTIVE HEALTH DIRECTOR OF MONROE COMMUNITY HOSPITAL 

September 13, 2021 
 

Dear MCH Family and Friends,
 

Administration was made aware of a staff positive today. The contract staff member last worked on 9/10. Friendship 1 East unit will remain under isolation as a result, and COVID testing of all residents will continue as scheduled. Compassionate care visits are still allowed at all times, however visitors should be aware of potential for COVID-19 exposure while in the facility. 
 
We ask that all of our visitors under compassionate care guidelines continue to follow MCH’s infection control requirements, including frequent handwashing, reducing travel throughout the facility, and avoiding entering the building if symptomatic. Thank you for your continued cooperation.   

 

Sincerely,  
Alyssa Tallo
Executive Health Director

Dear MCH Family and Friends,

As part of our ongoing effort to provide our residents with the best care possible, we will be temporarily relocating the residents of Faith 3 East onto other units throughout the facility. Our goal with this short-term relocation, is to allow us to logistically care for all of our residents with existing resources. We hope that consolidating units will have a positive impact in our ability to provide residents with the best care possible.
 

Furthermore, we are excited to announce that physical transformation of Friendship 1 West as a result of the Friendship Place grant we received, will begin in the near future. We are developing plans to temporarily relocate residents from Friendship 1 West while completing renovations to ensure resident safety. The logistics of relocating residents is complex and done with great care – we are glad that our careful planning will allow us to perform the relocation with minimal disruption to our residents.

We would like to begin the process of relocating residents soon. This arrangement is temporary in nature, but we hope will deliver long-lasting benefits. Over the next few weeks, we will also be performing sidewalk replacements throughout the complex, to ensure the safest grounds possible. As a result, the Clinic entrance and surrounding area will be out of service through at least the end of this week.
 

I want to thank you for your continued support as we work together to navigate one of the most challenging periods in healthcare delivery that many of us have seen in our lifetimes. This has been a crazy year! Thank you for your continued patience and support. As always, don’t hesitate to reach out to me or any member of my administrative team with questions. 

Sincerely,

Alyssa Tallo

Executive Health Director
