To reduce the risk of a possible COVID-19 exposure we are limiting the amount of people we allow in the building. If your surgery is under 45 minutes only one responsible adult is permitted in the center. (Exceptions: patients age 17 and younger, patients requiring special needs or an additional caretaker) Wearing a mask is required by both the patient and the responsible adult.
The patient and their responsible adult (if the responsible adult is entering the facility) will be screened for COVID-19 on the date of service at the registration desk. The screening will consist of a series of questions and a temperature check.
