Open Letter to Our Communities about Coronavirus (COVID-19):

Appalachian Regional Healthcare (ARH) is diligently working to reduce the chance of potential spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19). The measures include appropriate screening, education, and preparation in the event a case presents in any of our communities. At this particular moment, and according to the Kentucky Governor’s office, there are no confirmed cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in our communities. We remain supportive of and in continual monitoring of all communication from the offices of Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear and West Virginia Governor Jim Justice.

All ARH hospital, clinic, pharmacy, home health and home medical equipment store operations are running as normal. You can feel confident that all measures to keep our patients, visitors and community safe are our highest priority. These measures may include, but are not limited to, restricting the number of visitors to vulnerable patient populations, screening visitors for travel and temperature concerns, and reducing the amount visitation time, as well.

ARH, as a leading and trusted healthcare provider for Appalachia, and in conjunction with our local Governors’ offices, we intend to be fully transparent regarding the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in our communities. Please stay tuned to our website, Facebook pages and local media for developments as we all work together to control the potential spread of this virus into our communities.
