Our COVID-19 Response

The COVID-19 Pandemic has challenged our facility in new and unimaginable ways, but it is important, now more than ever, to stand together to support our health system, frontline workers, and each other.

At Parker, we have continued to stay true to our mission to provide, with compassion and dedication, superior quality health care and rehabilitation for adults. During this crisis we have taken extra measures to keep our patients and residents safe including:

 The incredible moment that Mr. Tully, our first fully recovered COVID-19 patient, was applauded by our community leaving Parker Jewish Institute! “Parker gave me the care I needed,” Mr. Tully said from his Bayside home, six days after his release.
  • Mandatory supplemental training programs for our staff about the coronavirus and best practices for patient care, infection control and personal safety, building on the extensive training they already receive at regular intervals during the year
  • Intensifying our housekeeping and disinfection schedules, while also implementing strict handwashing, hygiene, and infection control protocols
  • Continuous testing of patients and residents to mitigate exposure and spread of infection
  • Dramatically increasing our PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) expenditures
  • Developing a dedicated phone line to fulfill family members requests for updates on a loved one by a member of the clinical or medical team, or simply coordination of FaceTime and phone calls

We will continue following all necessary procedures throughout this pandemic, and together we will persevere past this. Thank you for your steadfast support.

“The Parker Jewish Institute is always ready. When COVID-19 shocked our nation, Parker’s response was quick to protect our residents and staff.”
