Haven Wanted To Develop Innovative Healthcare Solutions, Is Now Shutting Down

Haven, the company backed by Amazon.com, Berkshire Hathaway and JPMorgan Chase surprisingly started informing employees today that it will shut down by the end of next month.  Many of the company’s 57 workers will be offered new jobs at one of the three founders of the non-profit.  The problem, insiders say, is that rather than working together, the three companies developed their own products on their own.


Monterey, CA Nursing Homes Hit Hardest By COVID-19

I recently wrote about the fact that although the number of cases of coronavirus in nursing homes is low as a percentage of all cases, they account for a full 40% of deaths from COVID-19.  California’s Department of Public Health has listed 21 skilled nursing and assisted-living facilities that have reported COVID-19 cases.  The worst by far is Windsor Monterey Care Center at 78, followed by Pacific Coast Post Acute at 72, and Windsor The Ridge Rehab Center which has had 67 patient cases and 62 staff members carrying the virus.  Cypress Ridge Care Center has had 49 patients with coronavirus and 40 staff members, while Windsor Skyline Care Center has had 47 patients and 14 staff members with the virus.

This data shows why local hospitals are discharging many patients to their homes rather than have them go to a rehab center prior to going home.
