BronxCare COVID-19 Task Force Is Achieving Successful Outcomes

BronxCare established a multi-disciplinary task force to address the ongoing challenges presented by COVID-19. The task force chaired by Dr. Magdy Mikhail, Chairman, OB/GYN/ Acting Chief Medical Officer/Deputy Medical Director, addressed such key issues as capacity and surge intensity, staffing levels, and availability of supplies, as well as transfer and discharge of patients and compliance with Department of Health guidelines. In addition, visitation policies, screening and testing procedures, and travel restrictions were reviewed, and policies related to these and other issues were implemented.

"As a result of our efforts, BronxCare has successfully marshaled the resources required to confront the crisis, maintain high quality care to patients, and support our health care workers in every possible way."
