COVID-19 response: How Providence Southwest Washington continues to serve our Mission
At Providence, we care for individuals with infectious diseases every day, and we have experience in preparing for pandemics from H1N1 to Ebola. We drew on those plans to prepare for COVID-19. Our experience, training, and experts are what keeps our community safe.
Since our first Incident Command meeting in February until present day, we continue to focus on safety measures for our patients, caregivers, and communities. This Incident Command is ongoing and will not stand down until the pandemic is fully stabilized, making it the most extended Incident Command in the history of Providence Southwest Washington.
Our story is your story. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our community did not hesitate to provide support by donating personal protective equipment (PPE) meals, and other supplies to our frontline workers. We watched our community come together with neighbors helping neighbors, we felt the gratitude for our dedicated medical staff, and we pivoted in a virtual, socially-distanced world.
