Don't Wait to Get the Care You Need
When asked to stay home and help us stop the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), you responded. We could not be more grateful for the response and outpouring of support. Together, we have started to flatten the curve.
As we continue to treat COVID-19 patients, please know our doctors are still here, virtually and in-person, to address your medical needs. Our emergency departments and other clinics are available and delivering high-quality care when you need it.
Please don’t wait to get the medical care you need. Maintaining your health now is just as important as ever.
Visiting the Hospital for Emergencies or Urgent Procedures
Our emergency departments are open and taking care of patients. If you have a health emergency, don’t delay or hesitate to come in. We continue to have visitor restrictions and screening processes in place at our hospitals to protect our patients and caregivers.
While some postponed surgeries and procedures could be rescheduled in coming weeks, those that are urgent are still being provided and should not be put off.
Safety is Our Top Priority
Your health and safety are our top priorities. We have safety measures in place and are following local, state and federal protocols to keep our patients and caregivers safe in our hospitals and clinics. Some of the actions we have taken include:
- Our physicians and caregivers are equipped with the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) and materials required in the treatment of COVID-19, as well as other surgeries and procedures.
- We are expanding COVID-19 testing capacity for our patients and caregivers.
- We have thoughtfully segmented COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 patients to minimize the risk of exposure in our facilities.

For your convenience, telehealth appointments can now be scheduled by video or phone with your provider. These virtual appointments will allow you to continue receiving the best care without leaving your home.
