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

June 16, 2021

 

Dear MCH Family and Friends,

We appreciate all of your support and patience over the past 15 months. We are proud that our resident vaccination rate has remained over 90%, and that we continue to encourage and assist staff in obtaining vaccinations.

 

We have developed and implemented plans for personal and compassionate caregiving visitation as directed under the Compassionate Care bill. Under this regulation, identified personal caregiving visitors would be allowed to provide care to residents during a public health emergency. A copy of the regulation can be found here.

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
