Operation Vaccination Warp Speed!

December 18, 2020
Crowne Pointe Care Center in Columbus, Ohio, was the site of the first nursing home patient vaccination in the State of Ohio this morning, December 18th. Governor Mike DeWine, Mayor Andrew Ginther, CEO of Walgreens, John Stanley and Dr. Ursel McElroy of the Department of Aging attended and conducted a socially distanced Zoom press conference.

Rebecca, the participating resident, took the shot like a champ! Upon receiving the vaccination, Governor DeWine asked Rebecca how she felt. Her answer? "GREAT!" The governor with the first lady, Fran DeWine, then revealed to Rebecca that he has a daughter and granddaughter by the same name. Even with her mask on this news elicited a delighted smile you could see in her eyes.

The Walgreens staff who administered the vaccine spent the rest of the day vaccinating the remainder of the staff and residents of both Crown Pointe and High Banks Care Centers. These are two of Foundations Health Solutions' Columbus Care Center locations. The additional 56 Founations Health Solutions' facilities in Ohio are set to receive the vaccination throughout the next few weeks. Foundations is set to open four new locations in 2021.  One of these will open in Johnstown, another in Westerville. "A culture of quality care is our cornerstone and we are beyond excited to explore service in these new communities."

Crown Pointe is proud to have been chosen for this honor. It has been a turbulent year for each of us. Residents are anxious to hug their loved ones, see the faces of their caregivers and have life return to normal. We thank the Governor, Mayor, Department of Aging, and Walgreens for this chance to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
