Dear Patients, Families, Colleagues, Staff, and Interested Parties:
The COVID-19 outbreak is affecting every aspect of life in our region, and our nation; at THIRA Health our highest priority is maintaining the well-being, safety, and health of our patients, staff, and the families and loved ones of both patients and staff. Our Leadership Team and key staff members have been meeting daily to establish, monitor, and evaluate measures that we are undertaking in response to COVID-19. We are closely monitoring updated recommendations from the CDC, Washington State Health Department, King County Health Department, and the City of Bellevue, and updating our policies in real time to respond to the evolving recommendations. THIRA serves patients whose need for our services does not go away when external circumstances change, and we are working every day to make our service delivery model comply with current recommendations. We have instituted a program of additional daily disinfection of our spaces, taken on two additional office suites in our building to create greater opportunities for recommended social distancing, are making changes to our programming and schedule, and modified many of our procedures to comply with updated infection-control best practices. Please take a look at the information accompanying this message for more detail about how we are addressing this public health issue. If you’d like to talk about our response measures, please call us at 425-454-1199.
Wishing You, Your Family, and Your Loved Ones Good Health,
Mehri D. Moore, MD
Founder, CEO, and Chief Medical Officer of THIRA Health
