WAYNE – Providence Medical Center in Wayne is asking patient visitors to refrain from visitation if they have a fever, cough or trouble breathing.
The request comes from Jim Frank, Providence Medical Center CEO, who adds that patients who have appointments in Outpatient or Therapy clinics consult their physicians prior to the appointment if they are experiencing any of those symptoms.
Frank says “we are monitoring the situation very closely and are participating in daily conference calls with the Health Departments at the federal, state and local levels. Providence Medical Center is following all guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and have implemented specific measures that pertain to our visitors and patients.”
Frank continues – “As always, our priority is to maintain the health of our patients and staff. Be assured that we are implementing all proper precautions necessary during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.”
Providence Medical Center notes that the CDCs website will provide other valuable and accurate information regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
