The health and well-being of our patients, residents and team members is our number one priority. Despite many of the counties in which we operate beginning to re-open, per the Departments of Health, Concordia is still operating under a no visitation policy, except for patients/residents in end-of-life situations. However, those wishing to see their loved ones can schedule time with them at one of our safe visitation areas. Please call your loved one's facility for more information. For information regarding Concordia’s coronavirus precautions and cases, please click here. We have also began publishing regular video devotions from our Chaplains.

Between the three performances of the Live Nativity, we had some great entertainment inside (in addition to some delicious cookies and hot chocolate). Special thanks to  St. Luke Lutheran School 3rd and 4th graders, the Haven Alleluia Chorale, Haven III resident Bill Champion and Maintenance Staff Member Sam Scott for playing, singing and leading the crowd in Christmas carols!

We also would like to thank the residents of Haven II for hosting this event, Saxonburg Fire Police for traffic control and all of our OUTSTANDING staff and volunteers for their time and enthusiasm in helping to share the Christmas message.

As the world celebrates Christmas, we join together and openly proclaim the true meaning of this miraculous event. We offer thanks to God for sending his only Son, Jesus Christ. We wish you and your family a Blessed Christmas!
