Temporary Service Interruptions and Closure Notices (Last updated: Sept. 10, 2021 at noon)

Horizon may temporarily adjust a facility's hours of service or available services due to physician and nursing shortages. These changes are necessary for Horizon to continue offering safe and quality care to patients and clients.

Despite the unprecedented challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, Horizon has maintained an aggressive, proactive and innovative approach to physician and nursing recruitment over the course of the past year. We continue to monitor staffing levels closely and will continue with physician and nursing recruitment efforts for its facilities.
