As part of the ongoing commitment to health and safety, Rosecrance medical staff in Winnebago County are offering the COVID-19 vaccination to clients participating in residential treatment programs. Medical and direct care staff are also receiving the vaccine.
“We are so grateful to provide the vaccine for our clients in residential care,” said Tom Wright, MD., Rosecrance Chief Medical Officer. “Individuals in residential care for behavioral health disorders frequently experience additional health issues. Our goal is always to treat the entire mind, body, and spirit.”
As vaccine is available in Winnebago County Rosecrance is providing it for clients, and is working with health departments in other counties in Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin to provide access at its other facilities. Rosecrance began offering on-site COVID-19 testing for residential clients last fall.
