“To continue to control and suppress spread, we must continue to stand together to tackle what is the greatest public health challenge of a generation. We have come so far, but it is not over,” said David Byrom, Coryell Health CEO. “We’ve built a health system that’s designed to care for this community — and our community’s needs persist.”
“Limiting the spread of the virus is a top priority,” adds Byrom. “In the meantime, many of our services are continuing, and patients are receiving access to the medical care to which they’ve grown accustomed to receiving.”
“I’m extremely proud of how our organization has risen to this challenge. Our business has been severely disrupted and we’re facing some unprecedented obstacles, but we have responded well. I’m confident in our team’s willingness to fulfill our mission to serve our communities.”
Byrom is grateful for everyone and their commitment to community health.
