Our surgery center strictly follows and even goes beyond Department of Health issued guidance for ambulatory surgery centers to protect our patients and our staff, including:

  • Comply with state and CDC guidelines to protect against further spread of COVID-19.
  • Require preoperative COVID-19 RT-PCR test and ensure COVID-19 negative status before a scheduled procedure.
  • Institute screening of staff for symptoms and have policies in place for removal of symptomatic employees.
  • Enforce social distancing requirements in work and common areas.
  • Require masks for patients, except patients receiving services that would not allow for masking.
  • Have established plan for cleaning and disinfection prior to using facilities to serve non-COVID patients.

We do not perform procedures on COVID-19 positive patients.
