N.C., AdventHealth Hendersonville Expands COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) Screenings for All Patients and Visitors

Mar. 10, 2020; HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. AdventHealth Hendersonville has implemented increased COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) screenings for everyone coming into its facilities across Western North Carolina.

AdventHealth Hendersonville leaders report no confirmed cases of COVID-19 at any of its facilities. However, as the reports of more presumptive positive cases in our state and region increase, AdventHealth is expanding its precautionary measures to continue its promise to provide safe, high-quality care.

The expanded screening will protect patients, team members and visitors from the risk of possible exposure to the COVID-19 virus. It involves screening people who come to AdventHealth facilities for fevers and the respiratory symptoms of a cough or shortness of breath.

“We have heard from several people who have gone through this new screening. They are telling us they appreciate knowing we are taking this extra precaution to keep them safe and reduce the risk of exposure to the COVID-19 virus,” said Jimm Bunch, AdventHealth Hendersonville President and CEO.

AdventHealth continues to have the visitor restrictions it implemented regarding the flu in place for anyone under the age of 18.
