Salisbury’s Peninsula Regional Medical Center is teaming up with Salisbury University to provide housing for recovering COVID-19 patients following their discharge from the hospital.
The patients will be housed at SU’s Dogwood Village student housing complex. This will provide an isolated setting for 14 days, for up to 100 patients.
Similar to PRMC’s inpatient facility, no visitors will be allowed for COVID-19 patients at Salisbury University.
“These are patients who could have gone home but just can’t because of other circumstances.” said Dr. Kathryn Fiddler, PRMC’s Vice President of Population Health.
Salisbury University President Dr. Charles Wight said “PRMC and SU have been tremendous partners healthcare and education throughout the years. We are proud to extend that partnership to help those in our area affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
The first patients will be moved to Dogwood Village at Salisbury University later this week.
