Washington: Things to know for SW Washington

March 24, 2020 Providence News Team

In order to protect the health of our communities, and as a safety precaution to prevent the risk of spreading COVID-19, Providence St. Peter and Providence Centralia hospitals are limiting some services and instituting additional visitor restrictions in accordance with recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In addition, some hospital access points will be consolidated at our hospital campus locations.

  • All elective procedures at Providence St. Peter Hospital and Providence Centralia Hospital have been canceled. Patients should contact their provider office for further instruction.
  • We have canceled most Providence Outpatient Rehabilitation services (Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Speech-Language Pathology).
  • All outpatient tests have been suspended unless the test is urgent or emergent and the patient has no fevers or respiratory symptoms. Suspended tests include lab, echo, EKG, DI, and sleep. We will be working to notify the currently scheduled patients.

Providence understands the importance of patients having access to their loved ones while receiving care in the hospital. At this time, we ask patients and their families to consider communication through phone and video chat as their primary means of communication.
