Here are some updates on what we’ve been up to lately:

Did you know that MCC’s behavioral health department is ?????? ???% ?? ??? ?????? ?? ???????? that they saw in February, the month before this all started? Shout out to our therapists – now more than EVER they are meeting the needs of our patients. Many of us are stressed and anxious these days. Thank you to our BH team for helping our patients to get through this challenging time.

?????????? ??? ??? ???! Behavioral Health is conducting ALL of their visits via telephone or video. Medical at South Street is doing 87% of their visits virtually. The South Street lobbies remain closed and we are only seeing emergency dental patients. We are seeing as many women’s health patients as possible by telemedicine at our Sequoia Circle location, and are carefully following all guidelines for in person appointments, both at Sequoia Circle and at our Pediatrics site. Stay tuned for news about more in person services at MCC in the near future. We are looking forward to seeing you again!

?? ???? ??????? ??? ?????-?? ???????????? ???????, testing patients and staff who do not have symptoms in an effort to learn whether there is community spread on the Coast without symptoms being present. We did 265 last week and 27 the Friday before, for a grand total of 292! Results from May 15th and 18th are in and are all negative; the rest are still pending. Thank you to all our staff for making this happen, especially our Registered Nurses Jessie Preiss and Bill Simon, our dynamic duo swabbing the masses!
