Letter from the CEO of Cook County Health System

March 2020 - COVID-19 Special Edition

Letter from the CEO

Dear Cook County Health Friends and Partners,

While Cook County Health has been preparing for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) since January, our efforts to make plans to care for infected patients and the work to mitigate community spread increased substantially over the past few weeks.

On Monday, March 16, CCH put policies in place in order to protect the health and safety of our patients and our staff. Some of the measures include:

·Visitor restrictions

·Reducing the number of entrances to be able to more closely monitor those entering our facilities

·Screening patients and providing masks

·Using technology for routine visits

·Reducing some services such as elective surgical cases

You can find more information about the steps we are taking below.

I am incredibly proud of the work being done by CCH staff as we join local, federal and global health care organizations in the fight against COVID-19. Our staff at Stroger and Provident Hospitals, our clinics, correctional health and the public health department have been working tirelessly to ensure the health and safety of those we serve. I appreciate everyone’s hard work and commitment to our patients.

While these are uncertain times, I am confident our staff will continue to rise to the occasion.

Along with health system updates, this newsletter will include the information about COVID-19 that you need, such as how to stay healthy, what to do if you get sick, and ways you can find and give help during this time. What we know from past experience is that social distancing, proper hand hygiene and common sense are critical.

Preventing the spread of COVID-19 requires all of us to work together. This situation is ever-changing and we encourage you to follow our social media channels on Facebook (@Cookcountyhhs), Twitter (@CookCtyHealth), and Instagram (@cookcountyhealth), and our website.
