Meeker, Colorado—June 29, 2020—Pioneers Medical Center appreciates our community. You have been supportive, and understanding about the necessary changes Pioneers has put in place to manage COVID-19. We give you our most sincere Thank you for wearing your masks and practicing social distancing. We appreciate the sacrifices businesses have had to make. Without these efforts, our community could be having a much different experience with the coronavirus.
This week Pioneers Medical Center learned that a relief, as needed (PRN) employee had tested positive for COVID-19. The employee was asymptomatic (without symptoms) and is self-quarantined at home
Since the beginning of the outbreak, the staff at Pioneers Medical Center (Pioneers) and the Walbridge Memorial Wing (The Wing) have thoughtfully prepared our employees and facility. We have put in place the most effective practices to protect our patients/residents and staff against COVID-19.
We have worked very hard in the Walbridge Wing nursing home to protect our most vulnerable population. Some examples of practice we are taking are:

“People need healthcare. We do not want patients to not come to Pioneers, because they are afraid of COVID,” says Dr. Kellie Turner, Pioneers Chief of Staff. “We are here to provide you the best care. We have made adjustments to give our patients the safest experience and protect them against COVID-19,” continued Turner.
