We have been working to keep everyone updated on actions being taken to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) at the Kline Galland Home, the Mary Schwartz Summit (previously known as The Summit at First Hill) and our Community Based Services. We remain committed to providing you updated information as regulations and protocols change.


A culinary staff member at the Mary Schwartz Summit has tested positive for COVID-19. This positive was uncovered from our weekly staff and resident testing protocol. The staff member is at home under the supervision of their personal physician.


To schedule your visit at the Kline Galland Home, please contact your social worker, activities department, or using our online scheduler. If you have any questions about your visit, please contact your social worker who can explain the conditions for the visitation to ensure your safety, along with the safety of residents and staff.

To communicate your planned visit at the Mary Schwartz Summit, please contact the Concierge. If you have questions regarding the visitation policy at the Mary Schwartz Summit, please contact the Concierge.

You are not required to validate your vaccination status, but will be required to acknowledge your understanding of the Governor’s rule regarding the current Visitation Policy. Thank you for your adherence.
