Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare is establishing a deepened and more closely supportive presence at The Village at St. Clair as a lead management resource as they deal with an outbreak of COVID-19.

As of Thursday morning, there are 97 cases in residents and 67 in staff.

Janice Kaffer, President and CEO, is now on-site, along with other members of the Hôtel-Dieu Grace management team and staff who are working closely with Joanne Potts, SV VP of Operations for Schlegel, who is also stationed full time at the Village.

Both the hospital and Schlegel, with the support of the Ministry of Long-Term Care and Ontario Health, have identified several priorities, and the HDGH team plans to respond as quickly as possible to start identifying and assisting the Village with their needs.

Hôtel-Dieu Grace will assume responsibility for priorities such as enhanced oversight related to communications, Infection Prevention and Control and Education, Resident and Family Relations, Reporting, Physician Oversight and on-site Leadership. This unique collaborative partnership endorsed by all parties is an industry-leading initiative that can be a template for other communities.

Officials say that communication with residents, staff and families is already underway.
