Summit Health continues to offer access to patients needing care both related and non-related to COVID-19. We’re keeping our facilities safe to provide essential preventive care, chronic care, and acute care by continuing to do things in a proactive and thoughtful way to ensure the safety and well-being of our patients and health care teams.
We have a triage protocol to direct patients to the appropriate point of care. Those with potential active COVID-19 infection will be evaluated in dedicated areas such as our Urgent Cares and Pediatric Illness Clinics, so patients with other medical needs can be seen safely in our offices and other clinical spaces.
What is Summit Health doing to keep me safe at my next in-office visit?
For the safety and well-being of our patients and in-office teams, we are reinforcing best practices and careful considerations at all our facilities, including the below:
- Appropriate personal protective equipment for our team members and physicians
- Rigorous cleaning and disinfecting of all areas
- Distancing when possible
Is it safer to postpone an office visit until the pandemic is over?
We understand you may be hesitant to seek in-person care at this time. However, the dangers of undetected medical conditions and chronic disease may put you at even greater risk. We’ve put careful precautions and protocols in place to ensure a safe in-office visit for essential care.
The one time it is better to avoid coming to the office is if you think you may have active symptoms of COVID-19. In this case, please visit one of our Summit Health or CityMD urgent care locations.
What are your visitation guidelines?
Patients may bring one visitor to accompany them at their appointment.
Are all Summit Health locations open?
