RAHC Adapting In Age Of Pandemic
“Adjust, pivot, adapt.”
Suzanne Sheridan, chief executive officer of the Rockbridge Area Health Center, has continually referred back to this three word mantra with each new challenge she and her staff have had to face during the pandemic.
“We started tracking COVID-19 on Feb. 24,” recalls Sheridan. “That was our last normal week.”
The lives of everyone associated with the health care facility were upended in early March when it became clear that no place, including the rural Rockbridge area, was going to be immune to the devastating effects of the novel coronavirus.
