We understand that you may have concerns about the risk of getting sick from other patients and hospital staff when you come to the hospital. Here are a few of ways we have adjusted our approach to patient care during this pandemic. Please read more about the work we are doing to keep our patients and staff safe in our letter to patients,

  • New health screening processes are in place in our hospitals and ambulatory clinics.
  • We ask a series of screening questions, every time a staff member, patients and visitors come onsite to ensure that they are free of symptoms.
  • We have strict stay-at-home policies for staff who are sick or have been exposed to COVID-19.
  • All hospital staff are required to wear masks at all times.

Visitor Restrictions:

To keep our patients, families and staff safe from COVID-19 and other respiratory viral infections, visitation is limited. Each patient may have two healthy primary-caregivers. Only one primary-caregiver at a time may visit the patient. No other visitors are allowed.
