With the increasing concerns regarding COVID-19 Coronavirus Henry Community Health (HCH) would like you to know that we, along with all Indiana hospitals, are prepared.
HCH actively participates in infection control efforts, regional patient safety coalitions, and in Indiana’s public health preparedness districts. These networks serve us well in responding to any public health emergency across the healthcare continuum in partnership with local, state and federal agencies.
Every hospital has already been preparing for this development by collaborating with state and local partners.
We urge everyone to take an active role in prevention of all contagious diseases, including influenza. Actions everyone can take include, but are not limited to, vaccination, good hygiene practices, covering coughs and sneezes, and staying home when ill. We recommend those looking for resources to utilize the Indiana State Department of Health’s dedicated webpage or CDC guidance to learn more.
