As concerns surrounding the Coronavirus continue to grow, we’ve gathered information from experts and trusted health sources to protect MacIntosh communities and lessen worries.
MacIntosh COVID-19 Prevention
The top priority at the MacIntosh Company is the health and well-being of our patients, residents and employees. Therefore, we are taking extra precautions at this time to ensure our centers remain guarded against the spread of viral infections. We are in close communication with State and Federal officials to ensure we are taking appropriate actions.
The MacIntosh Company’s Nursing and Assisted Living centers are following the Federal Governments mandate to strictly limit visitors. Until further notice, visitation is restricted to clinical caregivers and personnel that are essential to the operation of our centers. Special exceptions will be made for end of life care. All personnel essential to resident care will go through a screening process prior to entering the centers. Those not meeting the criteria will be turned away. Our goal is to significantly limit the traffic flow within our buildings as a means to prevent the spread of infection.
We understand that we care for our country’s most vulnerable population and are committed to ensuring their health, safety and comfort. Every member of our centers teams are dedicated to this mission, diligently operating with our residents’ best interests at heart.
Staying connected has never been as important as it is during this stressful time. That is why we are pleased to provide our residents and their families and friends innovative communication options with Virtual Visitation and MacIntosh Messaging.

We appreciate and thank you for your ongoing support during this time. For additional information, please contact our COVID-19 Hotline at 1-614-385-2121.
