COVID-19: OUR RESPONSE
The world has changed, but our dedication to resident care hasn’t. At Plainview Healthcare Center, we are committed to maintaining the health and safety of our residents and staff through the COVID-19 pandemic. As the local and national situation evolves, Plainview Healthcare Center is in constant communication with clinical and infectious disease specialists, including the Texas HHSC, CDC, CMS, and local health authorities. Our staff and team members are prioritizing the health and well-being of our residents and taking extensive precautionary measures to keep them safe.
We understand this is a time fraught with anxiety and concern for all. As a resident or family member, you can rest assured that Plainview Healthcare Center is vigilantly monitoring all developments relating to the COVID-19 virus, and especially its impact on the long-term care community.

We stand ready to adjust our response and implement new measures as appropriate. At Plainview Healthcare Center, our goal is to one day reflect on these unprecedented times and be proud of how we took care of one another.
As the COVID-19 vaccine has become available to seniors in Texas and across the country, Plainview Healthcare Center has acted quickly in procuring and administering this safe and effective vaccine to our residents and team members. We will continue in these efforts to achieve vaccination for all eligible community members in the near term.
