As Stonehill Health Center, Assisi Village, and the Stonehill Wellness Center continue to monitor the unprecedented situation wtih COVID-19/Coronavirus in the United States, our leadership, in partnership with our Nursing division, continue to make continual changes to protocol based on recommendations from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH), and Center for Disease Control (CDC). We make these decisions out of abundant precaution and concern for the well-being and safety of residents, staff, visitors, volunteers, and supporters of Stonehill.
