Our Commitment to Safety

Healthcare designed with your safety in mind

Although the world has changed, our commitment to providing the safest care environment possible has never wavered. The recent health crisis challenged us to go even farther, imagining new, creative ways to deliver care that’s safer for everyone. From emergency visits, to surgical care, to hospitalization to outpatient appointments, your safety remains our first priority.

We have new standards in place that allow us to safely provide medical care to you and your family whenever you need it. These include:

  • Screening all patients, visitors and staff before entry to our facilities including a temperature check. Those who show possible signs of illness are referred for proper medical care.
  • Maintaining visitor restrictions at all locations.
  • Masks being worn at all times by staff, patients and visitors. Those who need a mask will receive one upon entry.
  • Staff wearing appropriate personal protective equipment when providing care and adhering to strict handwashing protocols.
  • Testing all patients for COVID-19 before any procedure or surgery.
  • Enacting social distancing measures for spaces like elevators, waiting areas, lobbies, cafeterias and more.
  • Enhancing cleaning practices with even more frequent disinfecting of common areas like waiting rooms and lobbies.
