COVID-19 Clinic Update – letter from our CEO

March 13, 2020 | What's New


Good Afternoon,

As CEO of CURAVITA Health Group, I wanted to reach out to you personally to let you know the measures we are implementing at our Clinics to keep our patients and employees safe and healthy during the global health crisis regarding the COVID-19 virus. Your well-being is central to our purpose and our top priority.

We are proud that you consider our Clinics a safe space where your health and wellness needs are supported, and we want that to continue, so we have taken many proactive steps to maintain the healthiest environment possible.

In accordance with guidelines from the World Health Organization (WHO), we are cleaning our Clinics thoroughly and frequently. All of our employees have also been instructed to follow the WHOs best practices to keep themselves and our patients safe and healthy.

All employees will continue to wash their hands regularly, sanitize the office between patients, and not come to work if they are feeling sick.  Our healthcare providers, which include our Chiropractors, Physiotherapists and Registered Massage Therapists, will continue to sanitize their hands between treatments with each patient.  In addition, all treatment rooms are sanitized after a healthcare provider treats a patient.

We have placed disinfecting wipes throughout the Clinics that our staff, healthcare providers and patients can use on any equipment they choose, as well as paper barriers that are used on adjusting tables. We clean all of our rehab equipment after each patient, making sure to sanitize any surfaces that patients have come in contact with.

We want you to feel absolutely comfortable receiving care at our office. While current studies show that over 95% of those affected by this virus have mild symptoms and fully recover, we do know the importance of reducing its spread to lessen the burden on our elderly population and national health care system.

What you can do:

  • wash your hands regularly
  • avoid large crowds
  • avoid travel to affected areas ️
  • Stay home if you are feeling sick

We’re all in this together to ensure the health and well-being of our community. Thank you for your time, and we look forward to continuing to be of service to you.

Kind Regards,

Dr. Ken Brough, CEO

CURAVITA Health Group
