Limited Services due to COVID-19

As part of our efforts to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we are sorry to say we are suspending/limiting certain services at this time. We apologize for this inconvenience and we will work diligently to reschedule those appointments and ensure that our patients are properly cared for.

Clinics and Outpatient Therapies:

  • Limit visits to necessary visits only.
  • Continue sick visits.
  • No well visits – we will work diligently to reschedule and continue to make our patients our priority.
  • Providers will use professional judgement for patients that need to be seen in the office.
  • Utilize telephone visits for prescription refills.
  • Well baby checks will happen as needed.

  • Utilize telephone visits for patients not having a temperature when possible and for prescription refills.
  • Well baby checks will happen as needed.

Surgical Services, Pain and OB:

  • Limited to emergent, significant impact on activities of daily living, conditions in which clinical presentation would indicate a delay of 30 days will worsen their medical condition
  • Non-emergent surgeries will be reviewed by a committee of physicians to determine need.
  • OB patients will follow the surgical guidelines. Father’s temperature will be taken and health will be monitored.

“We urge everyone who has respiratory symptoms (cough, sore throat, shortness of breath) to call our hospital hotline – 269-273-9801 – for advice before presenting to the hospital or to the clinics. This prevents exposing others unnecessarily and will lead to a more dynamic screening process.”
