Facilities

A spacious lobby at the Women’s Health Center allows for proper social distancing before and during registration as well as when waiting to be roomed. Acrylic shields are in place at all points of the intake process.

Patients are brought into the Women's Health Center through doors that are closest to their clinical care area, to avoid walking them through the entire clinic.

Rooms are cleaned after each patient use with appropriate solutions and all contact surfaces are sanitized.

Patients

All patients are screened upon entry to the Medical Surgical Center for symptoms and given a mask.

Video visits or telehealth visits are conducted when appropriate to mitigate the number of patients actually moving through the Women's Health Center. These virtual care return appointments can be scheduled through your provider.
