CHICO, Calif. – As Butte County starts to reopen under the governor's stage 2, Enloe Medical Center will begin moving services back to the Enloe Rehabilitation Center.

The rehabilitation center was where the field medical station set up on April 6 for a possible coronavirus surge. The station was never used or needed.

“Though activation of the FMS at Enloe’s Rehabilitation Center has not been needed, placement of the site in Butte County gave us added confidence that we would be able to meet the needs of our region in the event of a surge of COVID-19 patients,” said Jolene Francis, Enloe’s director of Marketing and Communications. “We are thankful for the sacrifices our community has made to flatten the curve, proving once again how resilient we are when faced with a disaster.”

The FEMA equipment remains on-site and can be set back up if needed. Starting Monday, May 11, the Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation pain management clinic will be the first back in its regular office. Enloe’s Outpatient Therapy Services, currently seeing patients at Chico Sports Club, plans to return to the Rehabilitation Center once the state and county authorities approve the reopening of local gyms.

Enloe reps said that some of the screening tents outside of the main entrance at Enloe Medical Center are being dismantled Monday. However, Enloe officials said if the county sees an uptick of positive coronavirus cases, outdoor screening tents can be set up within hours.

Patient and visitor screening processes that have been incorporated will now continue as standard operating procedures at all Enloe facilities, according to Enloe officials.

Butte County has had 18 confirmed cases of coronavirus and 17 of those cases have been released from isolation, according to Butte County Public Health officials.
