COVID-19 Vaccine

Stonehill was very excited this week as we completed our first COVID-19 vaccination clinic in partnership with Community Pharmacy.  Stonehill was one of the first long-term care facilities to offer the vaccine in Iowa and the first in Dubuque County.  There were 156 residents and 229 employees vaccinated.  Everyone who received the vaccine did well and we are looking forward to our 2nd Clinic date, January 18, 2021.

All previous COVID-19 updates can be found on our website at: www.stonehilldbq.com/coronavirus.

If you have questions please contact Peggy Stockel, V.P. of Operations/Administrator or Matt Jahn, Director of Health Services at

We wish you all a Happy New Year!
