We’re here for you and your loved one! Our staff is working remotely. To prevent the spread of COVID-19, our offices are closed to the public.
Harbor Hospice and Palliative Care is taking proactive measures to reduce exposure of COVID-19 and has developed an organization-wide response and mitigation plan to reduce exposure of COVID-19.
Based on the recommendations of the Muskegon County Public Health Department, MDHHS, and CDC, Harbor Hospice and Palliative care has developed a “social distancing plan” geared towards reducing person-to-person contact.
Like other Hospice organizations across the country, Harbor Hospice and Palliative Care will implement these measures while continuing to provide visits and core services to our at-risk population in our five-county service area.
The practice will be implemented from March 16, 2020 until further notice.
Please review the following:
