Lynwood Healthcare Center recently partnered with Los Angeles County Public Health in an effort to provide care to the most vulnerable community during this pandemic. As such, Lynwood Healthcare is now a dedicated Covid-19 facility. Essentially, this means that Lynwood Healthcare is able to accept vulnerable patients who are COVID+ from an acute care hospital and provide the care they need as well as the non COVID+ patients. Lynwood Healthcare has designated a COVID+ unit that is separated from the remainder of the facility with a dedicated staff and designated equipment with a barrier and separate entrance as permitted. By accepting these COVID+ patients it frees up hospital beds across Southern California that are desperately needed for those in dire need. With that being said, Lynwood Healthcare has now begun to accept COVID+ patients. As of today, 1 COVID+ patient has been accepted at Lynwood Healthcare Center.
