A Message from Kathy Callnan, CEO to The Cedars Team

March 23, 2020

Choosing words that accurately reflect my deep gratitude and appreciation for the work you are doing right now feels impossible. I have always known that we are part of an incredible and collaborative community, and right now we are being put to the test. I am impressed by your calm, caring, and thoughtful approach to the current public health crisis.

As COVID-19 cases increase in Maine, we want you to know that The Cedars continues to monitor and assess the rapidly changing situation on a daily basis.  As things continue to evolve, The Cedars is doing all it can to support you. We have been working to keep everyone updated on actions being taking to reduce exposure to COVID-19 at The Cedars. We are following CDC Guidelines as well as Centers for Medicare and Medicaid requirements. We take every step possible to protect the health and safety of our workforce in these unprecedented times.

I’d like to give a big round of applause and thanks to The Cedars team for all the extra efforts you have put in to make sure that things run smoothly. I’d also like to commend our entire team for your whole-hearted commitment to serving our patients and residents while juggling situations like school closures and elderly parents who need assistance. Our mission is to deliver quality care and service, and this remains our guiding principle.

We are certain of one thing – WE ARE STRONGER TOGETHER.
