Alternative care site opens in hotel

The region’s first alternate care site opened April 15, and took its first BJC patients – from Christian Hospital. The alternate care site, established in north St. Louis County at the Quality Inn on Dunn Road, is a safe place to recover for patients who no longer need to be hospitalized, without going home where loved ones could still be at risk of exposure. Hospital case managers and social workers will work with patients who need this resource during discharge planning. A clinician handoff document and patient information sheet are available.
