We're here and we're safe
We welcome patients to our facilities as we carefully resume our services.
While our commitment to care has not changed, we've adopted new measures to keep you safe in our Hospitals and Clinics.
When you visit, we'll check your temperature and we ask that you bring your own face covering. You'll notice we're practicing physical distancing and meticulous hand hygiene. Our staff is continuously working to clean and sanitize any space you may visit.
We're testing our Hospital and surgical patients for COVID-19. While it has been difficult, we continue to limit the numbers of visitors allowed in our facilities.
We believe COVID-19 will be in the communities we serve for at least the next several months. While we may modify some of our policies, you should plan to see these safeguards until we know it's safe to lift any restrictions.
Help us keep everyone safe by letting us know if you have a fever or respiratory symptoms so that we can direct you to the best place for care.
We understand the anxiety associated with visiting public spaces during a pandemic. Delaying necessary medical care can lead to serious complications. Delaying immunizations increases the risk of disease, especially in children on vaccination schedules.
We hope you're staying safe and healthy as we navigate this pandemic together. But if you and one of your family members need our expert care, we are here.
