Facility opened doors this week at 30%.
As Dr. Knudsen shared on Q&A with Dr. K today, we are thrilled to announce that the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge in San Juan, Puerto Rico opened its doors to guests this week.
The facility opened on Tuesday, July 13, with one guest and a caregiver. The facility will initially accommodate about 30% of its total capacity, with capacity increasing as pandemic conditions in the area improve. We are accepting guests via our referral partners only for now.
We continue to monitor pandemic conditions in Hope Lodge markets around the country and anticipate more facilities will open in the coming weeks and months. We’ll continue to update staff as more Hope Lodge facilities open their doors to guests, so keep an eye on ACS2Go for updates as they’re available.
For more on our reopening plans and criteria, check out this ACS2Go story from June, and take a look at our Hope Lodge key messages.
Reminder: Promoting Hope Lodge reopening in the media and on social
As a reminder, we are taking a careful approach to sharing the good news about Hope Lodge reopening. We are not planning a national press release or Masterbrand social media posts. Instead, local staff are encouraged to work with their Hope Lodge colleagues to share the news in ways that are relevant to their Hope Lodge facility’s unique reopening circumstances. Supporting resources will be made available to communications and marketing staff in the coming weeks.
