Extra Safety Measures for Your Protection

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 Mask Use

Even in a pandemic, you can feel safe. We’re stocked with safety supplies, have no shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE) and masks are required for all at our facilities.

Temperature Checks

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

Social Distancing

Feel confident you’re doing the right thing to keep yourself and others safe. With limited visitation, new waiting room protocols and more, you can safely practice social distancing.

Patient Cohorting

Take comfort knowing your safety is our priority. COVID-19-positive and symptomatic patients are carefully quarantined away from patients and visitors.

Visitor Limitation

Feel relieved by the extraordinary measures being taken, including limiting the number of visitors — and making sure those allowed are screened for symptoms before being allowed to enter.
