Updates To Our Visitation Policies

In an effort to curtail COVID-19 in our community, we have implemented a NO VISITOR policy, require screening and temperature readings for all incoming patients and employees, and have limited entrance into the facility to the following locations;
  1. Emergency Department - 24/7
  2. Outpatient Registration - Mon-Thur: 6am - 5:30pm & Friday: 6am - 4pm
  3. Clinic Entrances - same location
Please call the hospital or clinic you would like to reach about any questions you may have regarding bills, payment, medical records, etc. instead of attempting to visit the facility. It is well understood how important the support of loved ones and friends are to patients during their hospital stay, but we must protect the health and well-being of our patients, employees and community. Please call or video chat with your loved ones in the hospital at this time. Your understanding and cooperation is greatly appreciated.


The 2019 novel coronavirus disease is a new type of coronavirus first identified in Wuhan, China. The name of this disease has been abbreviated to COVID-19. It is part of the family of viruses that cause the common cold and results in a range of flu-like symptoms.

To get COVID-19, you need to have close contact with a sick person with COVID-19. Close contact means living in the same household with them, or taking care of them while they are sick, being physically close (within six feet) to them for more than 10 minutes, or literally being directly coughed on by someone with COVID-19. If you have not had this kind of close contact with a sick person with COVID-19, you are considered to be at low risk for infection. If you are not sure what kind of contact you have had, you can call your healthcare provider and ask.

We know many people are wondering, if they have fever and a cough, do they need to be tested for COVID-19? We are prioritizing the tests for people with underlying health conditions or serious illness. Testing may become more readily available in the future, but for now, if you have mild symptoms (cough, fever), you need to stay home and stay away from people. A test, whether it’s positive or negative, won’t change that advice!

The elderly (60 and over) and those with underlying health care conditions, like hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer, are at most risk of developing the disease. However, most people who contract the virus will come down with only a mild case of the illness and will recover.

Fever, persistent cough, and difficulty breathing.

If you develop symptoms, and have been in close contact with a person who has COVID-19, or is undergoing testing for COVID-19, or you have recently traveled to an area with widespread or ongoing community spread of COVID-19, call your health care provider before going to the clinic or physician office. If you are having chest pain, serious difficulty breathing, or another type of medical emergency, call 911.
