• Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, scientists across the world have been working to develop treatments and vaccines to combat the coronavirus. After months of extraordinary efforts, vaccines have been developed and proven effective through large, rigorous clinical trials. Other therapeutic treatments have received Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to reduce the symptoms of those with COVID-19. You can laern more about the status of vaccinations and therapy treatments below.
Information is flowing at a rapid pace as the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak continues to evolve. We are closely monitoring updates from the World Health Organization (WHO), the infection rate from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and virus tracking systems. We have established an emergency command center to monitor resources and plan our response.
Our expert clinicians regularly care for patients with severe respiratory illnesses and other infectious diseases. Our clinicians follow specific procedures using the tools and techniques in place to protect themselves, including the use of personal protective equipment (PPE).
