May 15, 2020 – We are open and here to provide the care you need

During this time of COVID-19, we want you to feel safe coming to OMC for primary care, specialty care, lab or radiology services, acute care, emergency care, or the hospital. If you need an appointment, a screening procedure, surgery, or elective procedure, we invite you to give us a call. Your safety as well as the safety of our employees is one of our highest priorities.

We understand you may be concerned about coming to our clinics or hospital for an in-person visit. As soon as you walk into one of our buildings until the time you leave, you will notice we have taken additional steps to provide a safe environment. This includes, but is not limited to, being screened as you walk in, to masking, to social distancing measures, to visitor restrictions, to additional and more frequent cleaning in our clinical areas.

When you arrive, you will be greeted by an OMC employee at our screening station. This person will ask you some questions and give you a sticker to wear. This lets others know you have been screened and have been cleared to enter the building.

You will be asked to wear a mask while you are in our buildings and you will notice our employees are also wearing masks. If you do not have a mask, we will give you one. Our request for wearing a mask is based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendation.

In our waiting areas, we have placed signs on chairs to indicate where you should not sit. This is to help with social distancing.

We continue to have in place guidelines related to guests and visitors at all our locations.

  • Only one caregiver/visitor per patient.
  • No visitors younger than 12 years.
  • No visitors who are coughing, sneezing, have a runny nose, fever, or a sore throat.
  • At the BirthCenter, you will only be allowed one support person and no visitors.

Over the coming weeks, you will begin to see changes to our hours and location of services. Any changes or updates will be posted to our COVID-19 website (https://www.olmmed.org/changes-to-hours/).

Thank you for trusting Olmsted Medical Center to provide your care and for your understanding during this COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to seeing you and are here to care for you today and every day.
