LA TIMES FEATURES WATTS HEALTHCARE’S RESPONSE TO CORONAVIRUS

  1. Home
  2. Emergency Care

At Watts Healthcare, we continue to closely monitor the rapidly evolving developments related to the coronavirus. WHCC has implemented universal screenings at our health center locations for patients, visitors and employees as a precautionary response, and our healthcare teams have been trained on the proper use of personal protective equipment to limit possible exposure.

 

WHCC providers will continue working diligently to educate our patients on preventative actions to stop the spread of respiratory diseases, in alignment with recommendations issued from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). As a public health organization, our responsibility is to collectively to assure the conditions in which people can be healthy and improve health outcomes.

 

As reported in LA Times, community clinics and health centers are a vital part of the country’s healthcare system but the current crisis has created revenue and resource challenges. As a result of this pandemic, our organization has been forced to make organizational changes in alignment with public health guidance.

 

In an interview with LA Times, Watts Healthcenter’s President and CEO, Dr. Roderick Seamster, assured that Watts Healthcare is still seeing patients with chronic illnesses, and to reduce the risk of exposure, the organization has implemented a strict screening of patients and staff at every entrance.

 

As we navigate through the coronavirus outbreak, we remain committed to ensuring that our patients, employees and community feel safe and valued. We are grateful to our staff who remain at the frontlines in the fight against coronavirus.
