Dear Valued Patient,
Greetings from all of us at Animas Valley Audiology! We’ve missed seeing our precious patients in the office the past 6 weeks and have been busy in preparation for when we are able to officially re-open for in person patient visits in the near future. While we have all been working from home, we’ve also helped some urgent patients in the office under strict precautions, including newborns who failed their hospital hearing screenings. In addition to helping our hearing aid patients using telehealth, fixing hearing aid repairs left in our dropbox, connecting our community with Dr. Jeep’s Community Art Project, calling to check in on patients, and mailing supplies, we’ve also had some wonderful time home with those we love.
We miss the routine of going to work and seeing all of you. Our busy days fulfill us with all our interactions, helping serve patients, and hearing your stories as well. We also miss being together in person, as our team is truly our work family and our office is our second home. Daily video meetings each morning have been helpful in staying positive and connected. As the owner, Dr. Jeep wants you to know that keeping her team employed and together was a priority throughout this. Despite many small businesses needing to lay off or furlough employees, she is happy to report that she has been successful in maintaining the amazing team of women you are familiar with, and that zero changes have been made to our staff throughout this coronavirus journey. We are even stronger than ever before!
As Colorado moved from a stay-at-home order to a safer-at-home recommendation under Governor Polis on Monday, April 27th, our county moved to a “Safer La Plata” order which will push out our reopening until Friday, May 8th. When we do reopen, it will be in alignment with state and local recommendations in efforts to continue to reduce the spread of COVID-19. In anticipation of moving into the next stage of opening on Friday, May 8, 2020, patients will receive an email later next week. In it will be the precautions our office will be taking for each patient in order to continue to keep our staff and patients protected as well as guidelines patients will need to follow upon arrival.
Thank you for showing us so much love and support during this unusual situation. We are overjoyed with how amazing all of you have been. If you are inclined to, this is a great time to show us your support by leaving us a review on Google or Facebook to let everyone know how much you appreciate our innovative services and excellence in hearing healthcare.
