Melissa Farrell, President of St. Joseph’s Healthcare has announced that as of today the hospital currently has no COVID patients.
In a statement Ms. Farrell said, “This is the first time St. Joe’s is reporting no patients in 112 days, when the first COVID-19 positive patient was admitted on March 16, 2020. Our clinical teams continue to provide care to some patients who have previously had COVID-19 and are in recovery. While this is a great milestone for our hospital teams, the pandemic is not over. We want to thank our staff, physicians, volunteers and community partners for their continued support and vigilance.”
