COVID-19 Updates

A message from Executive Director Sister Rosemary Connelly, COVID-19 Update:

Misericordia is taking all precautions necessary regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus) and the risks associated with this virus. Our Emergency Preparedness Team and Administration are regularly receiving updates from the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) as well as the City of Chicago regarding necessary precautions and recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

We are so grateful to our dedicated and compassionate staff, and grateful, too, to the Chicago community for their love and financial/in-kind support during these challenging times, especially donations of masks, gowns, sanitizer and other PPE supplies.  The safety of our residents and staff is of the utmost priority, and your support is greatly appreciated by all of us at Misericordia, most especially by our residents and their families.
