HERE FOR YOU.
Our dedicated staff remains hard at work and ready to serve you. At Saint Joseph's Medical Center and our physicians practices, patient safety and infection control were always our priority, and now we've taken further action, creating separate COVID patient areas, implementing extensive cleaning practices, and enhancing screening for all staff and patients.

Saint Joseph's Health and Safety Initiatives
We continue to screen all patients and staff for coronavirus. When you call for an appointment, or visit the ER, staff will ask questions pertaining to possible symptoms of COVID-19 so they can determine the appropriate course of action, while reducing the risk of exposure to others. In some cases, a telehealth virtual visit may be recommended.
While infection prevention has always been a top priority, we are now taking special precautions when it comes to cleaning our ER and our entire hospital, to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. We focus on all high touch areas and clean multiple times a shift to make sure every area is continuously disinfected. In addition, we are using an Ultra Violet Robot (Solarius) as an extra measure to disinfect all areas.
Staff are taking the utmost precautions by wearing PPE during appointments across all of our facilities. In addition, all patients must wear face coverings at all times in the Medical Center.
No visitors are allowed to enter the Medical Center until further notice.
