Hello Humankindness Student Ambassador Program
The mission of St. Joseph's Medical Center is to improve the health of our greater community by providing quality health care services, exceeding the expectations of those we serve.
The safety of our visitors, patients, employees, and physicians remains our highest priority. We want to assure the community that St. Joseph's Medical Center is closely monitoring all developments with COVID-19 and we are prepared to identify, isolate, and treat any potential patient who seeks care at our facility. We are in contact with local and state health officials as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and our staff is following the latest guidance from these public health agencies. St. Joseph's Medical Center has the supplies and equipment needed to effectively manage the care of any suspected or confirmed COVID-19 patients and we are continuously assessing the volume of supplies at our hospital.
COVID-19 Convalescent Plasma Research
Physicians and residents at St. Joseph’s Medical Center have partnered with the Mayo Clinic on a prospective study involving convalescent plasma, which is the intravenous infusion of blood plasma from recovered COVID-19 patients into those who are seriously ill from the virus. The convalescent plasma treatment for COVID-19 is being studied nationally in hopes it increases a patient’s recovery time and saves lives.
St. Joseph's is currently seeking plasma donations from individuals who have fully recovered from COVID-19. For more information about donating plasma, please call (209) 547-5947 or email Teri Kozik at [email protected]
