The ConnextCare Board of Directors and staff express their deepest appreciation for the many thoughtful contributions that they have received during the recent Coronavirus Pandemic. The kind sentiment has expressed itself in a variety of forms. This has included donations of food, gift cards, personal protective equipment, and mementos. The contributions have been come from all corners of the community – vendors, patients, and staff. One heartwarming moment included arriving to work to a colorful message in chalk from anonymous pavement artists recognizing our health care heroes.

“It is with immense pride that I can represent such a compassionate and dedicated group of individuals”, said Daniel Dey, ConnextCare’s President and CEO. “Despite individual and family challenges associated with the Pandemic, ConnextCare staff has selflessly focused their efforts on finding creative and effective ways to continue vital care to patients.” This has included implementing telemedicine and telephonic patient visits, instituting enhanced sanitation, screening and triage procedures, and complying with a variety of regulatory and social mandates.
