INDIANAPOLIS – Signature HealthCARE, a long-term care facility with locations across the Midwest, is celebrating more than 1,000 COVID-19 recoveries in its 110 facilities.
“As of Tuesday, June 23, we have a total of 1,103 recoveries. That’s a 77.7 percent of our total number of positive cases so far,” said Joe Steier, President and CEO of Signature HealthCARE.
A release from Signature HealthCARE states its Putnam County, Tennessee facility was the flagship for its COVID-19 units, which accepted patients from hospitals and other long-term care facilities within the state that did not have the capacity or capability of housing and treating COVID-19 positive patients. The Tennessee location is now free of COVID-19, though at least five people in the facility died.
The release states Indiana’s Signature HealthCARE facilities have a 74.3% recovery rate.
