At Copeland Oaks and Crandall Medical Center the health and well-being of residents and staff is always our highest priority. We continue to hold residents and their families close in our prayers, and are doing everything possible to keep the residents and families we serve, our dedicated caregivers, and our communities safe.
The residents we serve are cherished members of the Copeland and Crandall family, and we hold the responsibility to care for them in extremely high regard. We are doing everything in our power to prevent community spread of the virus.
To date, there have been two residents living in a Beeghly Building apartment (husband and wife) that tested positive to COVID-19 in May. Sadly, one passed away and one has eagerly returned from the hospital and is temporarily in Crandall Medical Center, planning on moving to Assisted Living very soon.
In May, all Assisted Living residents were tested. There were eight Assisted Living residents who tested positive for the virus, seven of these folks temporarily moved to Crandall Medical Center and one is currently in the hospital.
