Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Appointment Postponement

IMPORTANT: We have postponed certain, non-urgent appointments 

We have postponed non-urgent ambulatory and inpatient procedures, and most non-urgent ambulatory visits. Further information for pediatric patients is below. We have contacted patients impacted by this change.

A non-urgent procedure is any procedure that, if delayed 30 to 60 days, would not jeopardize a patient's health. Similarly, non-urgent ambulatory visits are those where delay would not negatively affect a patient's health, such as annual wellness/routine physical exams, follow-up visits for stable medical conditions and office procedures. 

If you are a patient with a non-urgent procedure coming up that is critical to your health and quality-of-life, we will still see you.

What we did was delay care for patients whose health is not negatively affected by postponing their appointment. We did this to make sure we have the resources and staff we need to handle the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), and to limit potential exposure of staff and patients to coronavirus. 

This policy will stay in place until further notice.

Certain pediatric appointments to continue

We are suspending most well-child appointments for children older than 2 years, specialty care appointments and non-urgent procedures. We called each patient who is impacted by this change to reschedule their appointment.

We will continue to see children 2 years old or younger for their well-child visits, those that have urgent health concerns or procedures and those that need specialty care appointments that cannot wait. It is important that these children continue to receive life-saving immunizations and treatments during this time. If any of these patients have cold, flu or COVID-19 symptoms, these appointments will be postponed for two weeks until their symptoms and illness resolve.

This policy will stay in place until further notice.
