COVID 19


The novel Sars CoV2 virus has changed the world forever. Our goal is to treat and educate patients on COVID 19 in order to help save lives, decrease fear and anxiety, and help prevent unnecessary Emergency Room visits and the overuse/misuse of hospital resources. Medical supplies and hospital beds are in short supply. Our medical team has dedicated their lives to helping treat persons suffering from COVID 19. Since early 2020 our medical team has extensively researched Sars CoV2 and the corona virus family and treatment options. Our medical director, Kenneth Mitchell, specializes in infectious disease and has developed a successful protocol for persons suffering from COVID 19 infection. Our medical staff is knowledgeable and expertly trained in order to properly take care of patients with COVID 19. Here are some things we have done to help mitigate, educate, and successfully treat COVID 19 infections.

Every patient room is private and throughly sanitized between each patient using ozone (O3 gas), hypochlorous acid solution, and Citrus III (hospital grade). The large areas of the facility are ozonated daily and the furniture is sanitized. We offer masks to all patients and staff wear PPE while providing care. “Sick” and “Well” patients are separated by social distancing and the arrangement of rooms and have separate entries to the center.

COVID-19 Care

The COVID 19 infection is usually mild to moderate, but it can cause very serious symptoms and possibly death. If you have recently tested positive for COVID 19, please seek medical attention immediately.

Per our experience and anecdotalevidence, early treatment and diagnosis is the BEST possible way to mitigate severe COVID 19 infection. We encourage everybody to seek medical attention EARLY and DO NOT wait until symptoms are severe or extreme to see a physician.

We encourage everybody NOT to use hospitals as testing sites or to treat mild to moderate symptoms of COVID 19. Hospitals are short staffed, overwhelmed, and need to keep beds open for NON-COVID related emergencies as well.
