  • Community Health Providers to Staff Alternate Care Site
    April 17, 2020
    As the coronavirus pandemic threatens to reach an apex in Vermont in the next week or so, plans to provide health services for those who are not infected with the virus have been a main focus for Community Health. The primary care clinical staff at Community Health is being trained to handle the 24 hour-a-day operation that could accommodate 100-150 patients at the alternate care site (ACS) constructed in Castleton University’s Spartan Arena. Rutland Regional Medical Center (RRMC) coordinated and organized the ACS while Community Health will provide clinical staff and supervision for the alternate care site. There is constant communication between RRMC and Community Health as the situation unfolds and as RRMC staff focuses on caring for COVID-19 infected and hospitalized patients. The collaborative plan is an effort between state and local agencies.

  • Telehealth Demand Surges
    April 2, 2020
    As the coronavirus outbreak escalated in Vermont, I realized that virtual health care could be a lifesaving alternative, one that clearly could make a huge impact on Community Health’s ability to reach the widespread community that we serve in Rutland and Addison counties while allowing our most vulnerable and senior population to maintain the needed separation.
