Don’t Wait! We Are Ready to Safely Treat You.

Your health is our priority and we’re taking all necessary precautions. Patients who have delayed emergency care due to the fear of exposure to COVID-19 have seen easily treatable conditions become life-threatening.

Additional measures are in place to guarantee your safety and health:

  • Mandatory masking
  • Daily staff monitoring
  • Elevated cleaning protocols
  • Dedicated staff to triage patients
  • Separate non-COVID-19 patient area
