Sun River Health was asked by the New York City Department of Emergency Management and the mayor’s office to help in reaching out to serve, particularly the homeless recovering from COVID-19 who have no other place to go and who are often disproportionately affected when it comes to health care and social support services.
Pictured here are our very own Roberta, Amanda, Marcella and Georgina, who are geared up with N95 masks to deliver care to the homeless at an Isolation hotel in Times Square. Community health care providers began referring clients in need of a place to isolate to this new hotel isolation program. Clients must be COVID positive or symptomatic and unable to isolate where they live. Isolating individuals who have tested positive is critical to stop the spread of this terrible pandemic. These are individuals who do not require advanced medical care and can isolate with basic services including onsite medical and social services, meals, laundry, phone, internet, daily check-in calls by medical staff, and transportation to and from the hotel as needed. Sun River Health’s staff is checking in on residents, conducting vital sign checks, and providing referrals to necessary services, including on-site EMT/S services if deemed appropriate. Sun River Health will also offer regular appointments via telemedicine to residents of the hotel and follow-up appointments upon discharge to connect them with our ongoing care
