Extra Safety Measures for Your Protection and Safety

We’re employing the following safety measures and protocols to ensure you and your loved ones feel confident, protected and safe in our facilities.

Universal Face Mask Policy

The CDC recommends that everyone wear face masks in public settings to prevent the spread of coronavirus. We fully support this approach and are requiring all patients and guests in our facilities to wear face masks. We will provide you with a mask upon entering one of our locations. Learn More

Temperature Checks Upon Arrival

Though there are many symptoms of COVID-19, most people who are sick have a fever, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). So, you will receive a temperature check any time you visit a facility.

Have peace of mind that everyone you come into contact with has their temperature checked before being allowed in. Every facility. Every time.

All providers and staff will also have their temperature checked. You can feel confident knowing everyone in the clinic, office or hospital has been screened for fever.

Social Distancing in Waiting Areas

We have redesigned our waiting rooms to make it easy for people to stay 6 feet apart from one another and have limited the number of people allowed in waiting areas at one time. Registration desks also have clear shields to protect you and our registration staff.

At some locations, you can choose to wait in your car for a text message notifying you when it’s your turn to come into the building.

Updated Visitor Policy

You want to stay safe and protect those around you, but you also value the support of loved ones. In many of our facilities, only one visitor per patient is allowed, and they’ll need their temperature checked and will be wearing a mask. Learn More

Separate Care Areas for Patients Who Are Sick

People who have a fever or other coronavirus symptoms are safely treated away from patients and visitors in separate areas in our facilities. You can take comfort knowing that we are caring for sick patients in a separate area.

Frequent Cleaning and Disinfecting

All exam rooms, waiting rooms, equipment, screens and high-touch areas are cleaned and sanitized often for each patient’s safety.

Contactless Registration and Check-In

Some of our locations may allow you to check in from your car. You can then wait there for a text from our staff when they are ready to see you.

Our Visitor Policy may have changed since this blog/article was posted. Please click here for an updated version of our visitor policies.
