As the COVID-19 situation evolves, our hospitals, emergency departments and ambulatory sites will remain open to serve the community. However, we need to take important steps to keep patients, visitors and staff safe.
Your Gratitude Keeps Us Going

The virus is thought to spread by people in close contact (approximately within 6 feet) through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It is also possible to contract the virus by touching an infected surface or item and then touching the nose, eyes or mouth. The virus may be able to live on a surface for a prolonged period of time.
