Holy Cross Hospital worked closely with Centinel Bank to receive much needed funding.

Holy Cross was not only one of the first applications to be submitted to the small business association for a PPP loan in Taos County but we were successful in securing much needed funding. This was due in part to the strong partnership we have with Centinal Bank. For us to have Centinel bank as a local community partner was a huge asset when it came to being able to apply as quickly as possible. Our relationship with Centinel has been strong for many years and they are a valued partner for us here at Holy Cross. We wanted to take a minute to highlight the success of working together with this local business which in turn allowed us to offer the best care possible through this pandemic.

Celebrating Our First COVID-19 Recovery

Holy Cross Hospital held a ‘Celebrate Recovery Send Off’ yesterday for a patient who was quite ill with the coronavirus. She was admitted, with very low oxygen levels, so we are excited that she is recovering and is well enough to go home. Congratulations Juanita! We here at Holy Cross Celebrate you and your recovery wishing you the best in the days ahead!

During her stay, this patient was provided with a piece of equipment called Vapotherm which is used as an alternative to intubating a patient. This high flow oxygen is a safer option and allows the patient more mobility. When COVID-19 became a pandemic, hospital staff were quick to research equipment options, order, obtain and train on this new lifesaving equipment.
