Valley Palms Care Center recently partnered with Los Angeles County Public Health in an effort to provide care to the most vulnerable community during this pandemic. As such, Valley Palms Care Center is now a designated COVID-19 facility. Essentially, this means that Valley Palms Care Center is able to accept vulnerable patients who are COVID-positive from an acute care hospital and provide the care they need as well as the non-COVID-positive patients. The facility has designated a COVID-positive unit that is separated from the remainder of the facility. With a dedicated staff and designated equipment with a barrier and separate entrance as permitted. By accepting these COVID-positive patients it frees up hospital beds across Southern California that are desperately needed for those in dire need.
