Coronavirus (COVID-19) Visitor Restriction Until Further Notice
Beginning Thursday, March 12th, Swope Ridge Geriatric Center, in cooperation with federal, state and local direction, including our Medical Director, Dr. Jon Dedon, is suspending in-person visitation except in special circumstances, such as end-of-life situations. The elderly are at the highest risk of complications from COVID-19, therefore, exposure will be limited to screened, facility personnel only.
Phone and video calls to our residents are always welcome. Families and friends are advised to call our switchboard at, 816.333.2700, for additional updates. If a patient is in hospice or in an end-of-life situation, visitation will be allowed. Family members have any questions, they can contact the Administrator, Sidney Smith, at 816.995.1060.
