The CDC considers Gladwell andAtria residents a top priority and has recommended that each individual state include them among the first to receive the vaccine. Our long-standing relationship with CVS Health, as well as extensive experience with on-site flu clinics, will ensure that every community is prepared to vaccinate the moment it is made available. As this topic continues to evolve, we will work to get you the most current information as quickly as possible.
With support from Mayo Clinic Laboratories, we have administered nearly 100,000 COVID-19 tests to employees, residents and third parties working in Atria communities. We continue to perform 4,000 to 5,000 tests a week, with a turnaround time of three to four days for results - faster than the national average.
When most of the country was experiencing PPE shortages, we worked with suppliers and chartered planes to ensure our communities had the supplies needed to follow safety protocols. We formed key partnerships to make our own gowns, hand sanitizer and hand soap to help keep supplies stocked.
To better protect residents from risks associated with hospital visits, we have outfitted our communities with equipment and technology – including smart TVs, BP monitors and pulse oximeters – for telehealth providers and local physicians to treat residents virtually.
