Palo Alto

Stanford Health Care CROWN Clinic

Acute COVID-19 Recovery

The Stanford Health Care CROWN clinic for COVID-19 patients, isolated from other clinics to avoid spreading the disease, offers specialized care for patients riding out the illness at home. Health care providers at the clinic stay in touch with patients who have tested positive for the coronavirus but don’t require hospital care. They also treat injuries and other problems unrelated to the disease.

The clinic is known as CROWN, an acronym for care and respiratory observation of patients with novel coronavirus. A separate entrance ensures that CROWN patients remain distant from non-COVID-19 patients visiting express care and other clinics in the pavilion. Caregivers check on CROWN patients regularly. The frequency depends on their risk factors — age, severity of symptoms and underlying conditions. Caregivers speak with patients by phone, hold video visits or ask them to come into the clinic, where they can provide inhalers, painkillers or even oxygen to help manage symptoms.

Staffed with a physician and a nurse practitioner or physician assistant, plus other health care professionals, the clinic cares for COVID-19 patients who have a Stanford primary care physician or who have been referred by clinicians at any of several Stanford Health Care testing sites. CROWN clinicians follow the patients for two or three weeks, until they no longer have symptoms and are no longer contagious. The clinicians also see patients suspected of having COVID-19 who need urgent care.

Rehab & Physical Therapy 

The Atlantis Physical Therapy COVID-19 Rehabilitation Program is an evidence-based brain health and physical rehab program for former COVID-19 patients that focuses on helping people regain their cognitive and physical abilities after the illness to improve quality of life. The Program has developed a multi-pronged approach to create personalized treatment programs to help relieve these symptoms and improve our patients’ overall health and functioning.

This foundation establishes a baseline to measure improvements in our customized treatment plans. These areas include:

  1. Neurological/Cognitive Status

  2. Physiological Status

  3. General Strength and Balance

The functional status and abilities of each patient will determine the plan of care that will focus on breathing/respiratory improvements, fatigue and strength, along with cognitive performance. For neurological rehabilitation, the Program is unique in its utilization of the SMARTFit training program to increase neuroplasticity in the brain. Additionally, the Program utilizes an online cognitive assessment program from the highly-regarded Cambridge Brain Sciences, who track the long-term brain performance of Covid-19 Survivors. This helps the Program to identify neurological deficits including memory loss and processing speed that have become known as "Brain Fog."

The COVID-19 Rehabilitation Program is designed according to the needs of each patient with the goal of helping them return to a productive life at home or work, increase activity levels, and general social functioning. The Program’s highly experienced therapists can discuss the best pathway forward for each individual based on impairments and functional capacity.
