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, and have the personal protective equipment (PPE) including masks for all patients, visitors and team members at our facilities.

Temperature Checks

Have peace of mind that everyone you come into contact with has their temperature checked upon arrival. Every facility. Every time.

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.

Separate Waiting and Treatment Areas

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

Enhanced Sanitation Measures

If you’ve visited our facilities in the past, you know that cleanliness has always been one of our top priorities. But now we’re taking extraordinary new steps to ensure thorough, frequent and ongoing sanitation measures are happening around the clock.
