CEO Message: Guided by safety, KDH begins resuming operations

Hospital news | Tuesday, April 28, 2020

Contact: Dave Ommen

These past weeks have been stressful and difficult for everyone. I am extremely proud of our healthcare workers who bravely and selflessly continue to care for our community.

As we begin the initial phases of our plan to resume operations, we do so with a guiding principle: the safety of our patients and team members. It will be a deliberate process. Our goal is to provide much needed healthcare services while balancing local, state and national COVID-19 data and guidelines. Our employees will continue to wear masks, and visitation will remain limited as services return.

We extend our sincere thanks to everyone who has reached out to us with donations, messages, prayers and support. Individually and collectively, you have made an incredibly positive impact on both our front-line caregivers and everyone at KDH.

The Isolation Clinic and COVID-19 Hotline will continue as we know the virus is still here. We have testing available, and we can partner with any business or individual who needs testing. Antibody testing is also available, which can indicate whether a person has had the virus.

In the days and weeks ahead, our commitment remains the same: safely providing you and your family the highest quality healthcare.

Please do not let your health suffer because of the virus. Our providers are ready to help you.
