Coronavirus COVID-19 Updates

Last updated: March 30, 2020

HopeHealth continues to implement precautionary measures to help reduce the spread of the Coronavirus COVID-19 in alignment with U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Center for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) and the Departments of Health in RI and MA. The protection of our patients, their caregivers, our staff and volunteers is of utmost importance to us. Our system-wide COVID-19 task force, consisting of medical providers and other experts in the field, meets multiple times a day seven days a week to assess new developments and proactively implement additional precautionary measures.

HopeHealth Hulitar Hospice Center Temporary Visitor Guideline

All patient visitors to the HopeHealth Hulitar Hospice Center will be screened and asked if they have traveled outside of the United States in the past 14 days and if they have any symptoms of illness. We also ask that you limit the number of visitors to two at a time in the building. This guideline has been instituted for the safety of everyone at the Hulitar Hospice Center while still allowing you to visit your loved one at end of life.

Grief Support, Caregiver Support Groups and Volunteer Services

In-person grief support has been temporarily paused and will be provided telephonically and through other remote means. We are currently offering virtual grief support groups daily Tuesday through Friday. Your well-being is very important to us and we are here for you. For support, feel free to call HopeHealth's Center of Hope & Healing at (888) 528-9077 to schedule a time for someone to reach out to you. Please visit our grief support group page for a list of helpful articles and other support resources.

In-person caregiver support groups have also been paused temporarily, but we are offering a weekly virtual grief support group on Fridays. You can also call us at (401) 415-4664 to arrange caregiver support over the phone.

Out of an abundance of caution, we have also temporarily paused all volunteer patient visits. We know the important role that volunteers play in the lives of our patients and their caregivers. We are continuing volunteer support as much as possible over the phone and in other remote ways. To assist you, or for more information, please call (833) 818-1919.

HopeHealth's Evening of Hope & Gratitude

Given the uncertainties around the length of time that COVID-19 precautionary measures will be in place, HopeHealth's annual gala, the Evening of Hope & Gratitude, has been rescheduled from May 30 to Saturday, September 12, 2020 at the Providence Marriott. Visit our gala web page for more information.
