Dear Patients, Residents and Families
COVID-19 Second Booster Dose
The CDC recently released a recommendation for a second COVID-19 booster dose for certain persons. Specifically, a second mRNA booster dose could benefit people ages 50 years and older, as they are at increased risk for severe COVID-19. People ages 50 years and older may choose to receive a second booster dose, if it has been at least 4 months after the first booster. We recommend that appropriate residents receive their second booster dose. The COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer or Moderna) are available. Please let your physician or nurse know right away if you or your loved one would like to receive the second booster.

Evan S. Trost, MDMedical Director
Evan S. Trost, MD was born and raised in North Brunswick, New Jersey. After spending 4 years attending Brandeis University near Boston in Massachusetts, Dr. Trost relocated to Hershey, Pennsylvania where he attended The Pennsylvania State College of Medicine. After receiving his medical degree, Dr. Trost headed west and landed in Arizona where he completed his internship and residency thru Scottsdale Healthcare. During his last year of residency, Dr. Trost was the chief resident. During his residency Dr. Trost fulfilled his Dream of becoming a Pilot, completing flight school and flight training prior to his final year of residency. To support his flying habit, Dr. Trost moonlighted in nursing homes and discovered his love for skilled nursing and long-term care. Upon completing of his medical training, Dr. Trost continued working in the geriatric and skilled nursing setting, becoming a medical director in multiple facilities in the Phoenix area. Dr. Trost was received the Grobe Award during his final year of training, an award based upon accomplishment, service, achievement and excellence given annually to a graduating family medicine resident from any of the multiple programs throughout the state of Arizona.
During his first few years of practice, Dr. Trost opened a solo primary care practice while continuing to work as a medical director for multiple nursing facilities, a medical director for hospice, and continued to volunteer his time as the team physician for Coronado High School and the Scottsdale Unified School District. Additionally, just a few years after completing his training, Dr. Trost was awarded an Alumni Achievement award from the Pennsylvania State University – a university wide award given to graduates who have demonstrated a high level of excellence and achievement prior to the age of 35. He was the first recipient from the College of Medicine to ever receive this award. Over the past 18 years Dr. Trost has had a unique, “think outside the box,” approach to the care and management of his patients and the development of nursing facility programs and quality improvement initiatives.
Dr. Trost spends his time away from patients with his wife Erin, a hospice nurse, and his 3 children, 4 dogs, and pet pig. He also enjoys designing and building 3-dimensional and electronic projects, animated lighting displays, and designs, builds and flies multirotor remote-control drones. The past year has been the most challenging year of practice for Dr. Trost. While caring for patients with active Covid-19 illness he remained keenly aware of the risk it posed to both his patients and his family, including his wife who was pregnant and delivered his 3rd child during the summer peak of the pandemic.
In advising on the mitigation and prevention of Covid-19, Dr. Trost states, “This is one of the most challenging situations I have had to face. I have had to integrate every aspect of my training and experience to learn about Covid-19, understand the data and to develop policies and protocols that are evidence based. The extent of the evolution of our efforts to diagnose, treat and mitigate Covid-19 during the past 14 months is comparable to what occurs over 5, 10, 20 or even more years of researching and studying an illness or disease. Ensuring the care and management of Covid-19 patients is cutting edge and the prevention and mitigation of Covid-19 in our facility is optimized requires hitting a moving target – the changing science and data – each day. Fortunately, we are approaching the point where the data and science is understood well enough to start moving safely towards a new normalcy; we can start taking back all the missing relationships and separation that the past year had to have.” If you would like to speak with me, please contact the Center at 623-933-0022.
