Members in Action Case Study: Four Stages of Planning and Implementation During Covid-19: One Rural Hospital’s Preparations, Marshall Medical Center, Placerville, CA

Marshall Medical Center has been and continues to prepare for a potential patient surge related to the COVID-19 pandemic. At the same time, it continues its actions and education to help patients and communities “bend the curve down” and slow the progression of the disease.

By early April, El Dorado County had 28 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and MMC had no confirmed inpatient cases and three persons-under-investigation (PUI) cases. MMC is coordinating surge planning with its provider partners, local county resources and state resources, which includes potential expansion beyond MMC’s physical walls.
