Your Family's Health & Safety Is Our Top Priority

Your child's health is critical. Please keep all milestone, surgical and vaccination appointments.

We understand the uncertainty you may be feeling about coming into a hospital or clinic during this time. We are doing everything we can to keep our facilities open and safe for all appointments. 

How We Are Keeping Your Family Safe

 We have a number of measures in place at our main hospital as well as our outpatient centers to ensure your safety, including: 


Universal Masking 

All patients, staff and visitors are required to wear a mask, which will be provided to you.

Patient Screening

All patients, staff and visitors are screened for COVID-19 symptoms. Any COVID-19 suspected patient is isolated and all emergency room patients are isolated.

Consistent Cleaning

Our Environmental Services team continues to perform rigorous cleaning of our facilities, and we have increased the frequency of cleaning and sanitizing high-touch areas.
