After 453 Days Thomas Health Houses Zero COVID-19 Positive Patients
Today, June 24th, marks the first day since March 28th, 2020 that Thomas Health houses no COVID-19 positive inpatients. That equates to 453 days of caring for those who were diagnosed with COVID-19 and had to be hospitalized due to complications from the disease.
“It has been a long journey since this all began,” Dan Lauffer, President, and CEO of Thomas Health commented. “While we know COVID-19 has not been eradicated, it provides a glimmer of hope that things are going back to normal. We could not have gotten through the difficulty of the last 453 days without the hard work and determination of our staff.”
Thomas Health’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Matthew Upton, stated “with vaccination and monoclonal antibody treatments readily available; we hope that this is the beginning of a new trend for not only Thomas Health but our community and our state. The fight is not over, but with prevention and early treatment, we will prevail.”
