St. John's team members welcome patients back (1)

Safety measures have been put in place at St. John’s Episcopal Hospital, its emergency room, and its outpatient primary and specialty care sites to ensure the wellbeing of patients who want to see their health care provider in-person.

St. John’s outpatient primary and specialty care sites located throughout the peninsula, and the hospital’s emergency department are open and community members should not delay in getting the in-person medical care they need.

The hospital and its community practices have enacted several safety measures including:

  • Providing each patient and medical staff with appropriate personal protective equipment
  • Practicing social distancing
  • Prescreening sick patients over the phone
  • Using separate entrances and exits for those who are sick when appropriate
  • Swabbing sick patients in parking lots when appropriate
  • Thoroughly disinfecting medical offices and medical equipment
  • Separating patients with COVID-19 symptoms from other patients in the Emergency Room
  • Providing COVID-19 testing to patients prior to performing elective surgeries

“We are committed to providing our patients with extraordinary care while maintaining the highest level of safety and sanitization at the hospital and our outpatient medical sites,” said Karen Gleason, chief quality officer.
