Pasadena Villa Psychiatric Treatment Network has partnered with several COVID-19 testing partners to bring testing to our campuses. We are proud to be a national leader in delivering superior psychiatric care and will continue to invest in measures to be able to provide this essential health benefit.
At The Villa Orlando, we have engaged Aventus Health to provide testing for new staff and clients, and United Clinical Laboratory to provide testing for all current clients and staff. At Smoky Mountain Lodge, we have engaged American Family Care to provide testing for new staff, new clients, current clients, and staff. The Abbott Platform testing for COVID-19 uses oropharyngeal swabs to bring real-time, qualitative PCR based instrument to obtain positive and negative results within 24-48 hours.
We will continue to encourage and support all our employees to stay home if sick, quarantine proactively if exposed to COVID-19, and test negative before returning to work. As new updates and guidance are provided through The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and our local public health authorities, we continue to adjust our operation and adopt these recommendations within our environment of care.
