Patient Health and Safety

By March 10, 2020Blog

As communities begin to feel the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19), we want
to share with you the steps we’re taking at SunPointe Health to help protect the health
and safety of our patients and employees, which is always our top priority.

We’re closely monitoring local and national reports on the evolving impact of COVID-19
and, based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health
Organization and applicable public health agencies, we’ve developed plans and
established a task force that will allow us to respond timely and appropriately.
Our housekeeping and sanitation efforts in our offices have been greatly expanded.
We’re frequently disinfecting often-touched surfaces such as door handles, counter tops,
keypads, restroom surfaces. We’re asking all of our employees (and we urge everyone)
to follow the CDC
guidelines to prevent the spread of the infection.

We feel deeply for those who have been affected. Thankfully, as of now, we’re not
aware of any employees contracting COVID-19. But we have implemented guidelines
that instruct any employee who may develop symptoms or come into contact with
infected individuals to stay home and follow the CDC’s instructions.

Our office is currently closed to walk in patients, but we are scheduling video appointments to meet the needs of our
patients. If we become aware of any condition in our office that would make it unsafe,
please rest assured that we’ll address those conditions.

Again, the health and safety of our patients and employees are our top priority and
we’re committed to doing our part to help keep you safe.

Thank you,
SunPointe Health Partners
