HEALTH FIRST PRESIDENT & CEO STEVE JOHNSON: We are here to protect you and working diligently to do so
HEALTH FIRST: Information about COVID-19 is constantly changing. What won’t change is our commitment to you.
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – As President and CEO of Health First, I wanted to take a moment to reach out and let you know what we are doing in response to COVID-19.
I know this is an unsettling time for many, and I want to reassure you we are doing all we can to protect our community.
We have served the health needs of our families, friends and neighbors for more than 80 years. It’s an honor to do so – especially during times like these.
Information about COVID-19 continues to be released at a rapid pace.
I want you to know we are closely monitoring the situation, working with the Brevard County Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on a constant basis. We are here to protect you and working diligently to do so.
In this calling of healthcare, we are always training for situations such as this.
We are prepared and have implemented processes to ensure we can continue to provide you and your loved ones safe, high-quality care.
Some of the measures we have in place to protect you include:
▪ Screening visitors at all of our facilities
▪ Monitoring our associates to confirm they are healthy and ready to work
▪ Being prepared with the supplies needed to care for anyone who may be concerned about COVID-19
▪ Testing as needed. The capability for testing through the CDC and commercial laboratories remains limited. Therefore, we continue to follow the Florida Department of Health guidelines for testing.
I encourage you to visit HF.org to learn more and also watch the above video, where I talk about what we are doing to keep you and your loved ones well.
