The Florida-based company says it has a responsibility to keep its health and wellness centers open and serving patients, many of whom have diagnosed chronic illnesses and are the most susceptible to the coronavirus or COVID-19.
Company President Raegan Garber Le Douaron said WeCare tlc has been working in concert with its partners and clinical teams to keep centers open and providing the highest quality of healthcare, especially when patients need it the most. At this time, WeCare tlc operates 54 on-site and near-site health and wellness centers across the U.S.
“We have a duty to keep our centers open and caring for our patients. We serve many people with chronic illnesses and they are scared about how this health crisis will affect their conditions,” Le Douaron said. “Our clinical teams have worked tirelessly to provide top-notch care and use telemedicine to aid patients, easing people’s nerves.”
While other clinics have been closing across the country, WeCare tlc has stepped up its service and communication to clients, patients and staff. Each day, a briefing is sent to clients about the coronavirus and the latest health regulations on the federal, state and local levels. There are also briefings distributed to the clinical teams to keep both patients and the medical staff as safe as possible.
“We’ve had the pleasure of serving more than one million patients at our health and wellness centers, but I’ve never been more proud of our team as I am today. Their effort to serve those in need is heroic,” said Dr. Fayshonda Cooks, Chief of Clinical Services at WeCare tlc. “We are working to keep our centers operational throughout this crisis and will continue to provide the care our patients need at this critical time.”
WeCare tlc is on a mission to change how healthcare is delivered across the U.S. It provides on-site and near site health and wellness centers to companies and co-ops of companies. WeCare tlc’s clients also include governments, school districts and other organizations.
Telehealth allows patients to connect with their healthcare providers and receive health services remotely via telephone and/or video conferences. Through telehealth, providers can diagnose and treat allergies, colds, flu, bronchitis, vomiting, urinary tract infections and more. WeCare tlc has partnered with Spruce to offer telehealth services.
