Decommission of Denver Health Incident Management Team
Given the consistent decline in COVID positive patients within the region and admitted to Denver Health, along with the success of vaccination efforts throughout Denver, on Wednesday, June 30, we decommissioned the Incident Management Team (IMT) and closed this phase of our operational response.
In March 2020, Denver Health activated the IMT and opened a hospital Command Center to respond to the pandemic. Throughout the last 15-plus months, we have remained in a response posture, managing patient surges and providing high quality patient care; acquiring and allocating critical supplies and equipment; ensuring patient, staff, and community safety; and administering COVID-19 vaccines to individuals throughout the Denver metro region.
As the severity of the pandemic waned and vaccination efforts merged into normal operations, the IMT was scaled back to continue monitoring COVID cases in the region; navigating changes in public health guidance and orders, including mask mandates; and supporting clinics in administering vaccines.
While we settle into a state of “new normal,” watch for an email with more information on how you can continue to find updates on our on-going COVID-19 response.
