Dear CIMC friends and supporters,
First and foremost, our thoughts are with you and our global community during this unprecedented time. The safety and well-being of everyone, especially our beloved island community, are of the utmost importance to us. We continue to closely monitor this evolving situation, and because it is changing at such a rapid pace, we have established a dedicated webpage on CIMC website, which is serving as a gathering place for accurate and timely information about events and conditions at CIMC and the island. Please visit it often for the most up to date information.
To ensure the health and safety of our community and medical center staff, CIMC has taken immediate action. All health visits that can be done remotely by phone are conducted via the CIMC Clinic; we are conducting virtual check-ins for patients to have a brief communication with their practitioners before coming to the medical center; as many staff as possible are now telecommuting to work; we are asking the community to please call the medical center before they come in.
CIMC remains dedicated to your health and lifelong well-being in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the day this virus was first recognized, CIMC’s physicians and staff have worked quickly to implement safety procedures and protocols at the hospital, and share with our community the best practices while staying current with the latest information, treatments and tools.
Many have asked, “How can I support the medical center?” as we navigate this uncertain time. There are several ways you can help.
- Stay engaged with CIMC on Facebook, Youtube and Instagram pages and share our stories with your social network
- Contact our legislators to advocate for CIMC so we stay top of mind. Click here to learn how
- Make a gift to the CIMC Emergency Response Fund. We would be grateful for any contribution you are able to make to help us respond to emerging needs.
We are continually moved and inspired by how quickly our community and loyal supporters come together. As we work to meet the patient care needs on Catalina Island, we send our thoughts to all those impacted by the virus. Thank you for your engagement with and commitment to CIMC, and for your patience and understanding as we navigate these extraordinary circumstances.
On behalf of the patients and lives that will be touched by your support, we offer our heartfelt gratitude.
With deep appreciation,
Catalina Island Medical Center
