Press Release For Immediate Release

Nye Health Services made the decision on Saturday to restrict visitor access on our 3 campuses located in the Fremont, Nebraska out of precaution due to the recent exposure of people in the Fremont area to the COVID-19 virus. Mr. Russ Peterson, CEO of Nye Health Services, said, “This decision was made proactively to attempt to limit any potential exposure to the older adults who live on our campuses. While there are no known diagnosed cases of the virus on our campuses at the present time, we have been notified by the CDC that the elderly population, especially those with at-risk medical complications are likely to be the most vulnerable to the virus. We are working with our Medical Director, Dr. Thomas Wolf, and Three Rivers Community Health to evaluate and determine the best process going forward in an attempt to minimize the exposure of the virus.” No decision has been made on how long the visitor restrictions will stay in affect but we anticipate potentially up to 14 days. We realize that this limitation does create challenges for loved ones wanting to visit family members and we will work diligently to respond to our residents needs. If family members have questions, we ask them to reach out to the campus Executive Director.

Nye Health Services is a senior housing and healthcare company with three campuses in Fremont, Nebraska. Nye Legacy, a skilled rehabilitation campus, Nye Pointe, a skilled rehabilitation campus and Nye Square, a senior independent and assisted living campus.
