READY FOR YOU: COVID recovery updates, visitor policy and more

READY FOR YOU

The need for healthcare doesn’t stop because of a virus. Don’t delay your medical care.

Safety is our number one priority. We have established new processes for prompt check-in and limited wait times to ensure proper social distancing. Please call us for more information and to schedule your healthcare services to keep you safe and healthy.
-Raghu Adiga, MD, Chief Medical Officer and Infectious Disease Specialist
  • If you are having an emergency, need to schedule a procedure or want to see your doctor, it is safe for you to return.
  • When you come to the hospital or a clinic, you will see social distancing, rigorous cleaning, universal masking and temperature checks.

It is critical that we continue to practice the ways in which we collectively flattened the curve:

  • Social distancing
  • Wash your hands
  • Stay home when sick
  • Exercise good judgement about being in public
  • Call your healthcare provider if you are concerned about having COVID symptoms or being exposed to the virus

What we are doing:

  • We are scheduling procedures and surgeries
  • Patients undergoing certain procedures may be required to have a COVID test. Testing will be conducted at the drive-thru site by the Doctors Building. Patients will be notified by phone if a test is required.
  • All patients being admitted to the hospital will be tested.
  • Primary care and specialty clinics offer both in-person visits and telehealth visits to accommodate patient preferences.
  • We have arranged our waiting areas to facilitate social distancing.
  • Entrances into the hospital will remain limited, and screenings upon entry, including temperature checks, will continue.
  • Everyone entering our buildings are required to wear masks, which can be provided if needed.
