Sunshine Retirement Living publicizes that 100% of its senior communities have accomplished the vaccination course of in state
BEND, ore., May 5, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Sunshine Retirement Living (Sunshine), which owns and operates 42 retirement communities across the country, announced today that 100% of its assisted living, memory and independent living communities have completed their second COVID-19 vaccination clinic. In addition, more than 90% of residents in these communities opted for vaccination.
Last November, Sunshine announced that it would be one of the first senior living companies to enroll in the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) national Pharmacy Partnership for Long-Term Care (LTC) program. Each of its parishes immediately receives approval from the CDC.
When the CDC program started late December 2020Sunshine and its local leadership teams worked tirelessly with local health officials, pharmacies, and other vaccine providers to ensure vaccination clinics emerged in all communities as soon as possible. Now, just a few months later, all communities have completed the vaccination process.
“Last year was indeed a challenging one for our residents, our employees and our company, but this milestone of 100% complete vaccinations brings great hope and relief,” he said Luis Serrano, CEO, Sunshine Retirement Living. “As of today, I am pleased to announce that we have no active COVID cases in any of our communities and I look forward to the days ahead with renewed energy and optimism as we continue to prioritize the health and safety of our residents and employees I am extremely proud of our team members who exceeded expectations during the pandemic and worked tirelessly to promote the health and wellbeing of our residents during extremely difficult times. “
Sunshine Retirement Living has always given the health and safety of its residents and employees the highest priority. At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and before federal and local mandates began, Sunshine proactively implemented stringent infection prevention measures that went beyond the recommendations of the CDC and other local health officials. These increased safety measures included being among the first senior citizen companies to buy and run FDA-cleared tests for COVID-19 and 40 other respiratory diseases for residents and employees to help prevent and relieve infection.
Sunshine also invested heavily in a groundbreaking, safe, and innovative ionization technology called Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization, which eliminates 99.4% of the SARS-COVID-2 virus that causes COVID-19 disease. Industry leader Global Plasma Solutions technology was recognized by the University of Milan in the September 2020 and proved to be an extremely workable and ozone-free solution for inactivating the SARS-COVID-2 virus. UL 2998 certified search and inactivate air purification technology encompasses billions of invisible ions that eliminate harmful pathogens, particles and odors. The technology also inactivates several other pathogens, including norovirus, tuberculosis, Legionella, MRSA, Staphylococcus, Clostridium Difficile, E. coli, and other human coronaviruses.
