Alyssa Tallotallo-alyssa

Executive Health Director, Monroe Community Hospital

Years in current role: 1

What has been the biggest challenge you’ve dealt with over the past year?

Skilled nursing is arguably one of the industries most impacted by COVID-19. The long-term care industry was already navigating through many changes and challenges, and COVID-19 accelerated these challenges in skilled nursing especially. Looking ahead and determining the best path forward for Monroe Community Hospital, knowing the landscape of the industry is inevitably going to change as a result of the pandemic, is the biggest challenge I have faced in my current position and will continue to face in the near future.

What do you see as the biggest changes in the health care industry in the next 3-5 years?

I think changes as a result of COVID-19 are yet to be discovered and fully appreciated! In our region (and nationwide), workforce, community need, and skilled nursing sustainability in the face of ever-increasing regulations will play a role in not only how skilled nursing changes, but the impact those changes will have on the entire continuum of care.

What are you most looking forward to doing as COVID restrictions ease?

The better question is, what am I not looking forward to! Taking my son to the zoo, being able to have a date night at a movie or restaurant, being with my family for holidays, seeing faces without masks … I think this list could go on and on! Since skilled nursing is still impacted by COVID-19 restrictions, I have an even greater appreciation of all of the things that are happening in the community, and am eager and hopeful we will continue to see these restrictions lessen at facilities like Monroe Community Hospital.
