Your Connection for Emergent and Elective Surgeries
We will be following the latest safety precautions and guidelines set forth by the State of Mississippi and Alabama in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We’re backed by our experience and results, and our safety precautions have never been stronger:
- These precautions include screening of physicians and staff involved in patient care. All surgical patients and their designated visitor will undergo a COVID-19 screening upon arrival.
- Patients will receive a mask. Visitors are required to wear the masks for the duration of their visit. We will continue to observe social distancing in public areas.
- Our visitation policy for inpatients allows one designated visitor per day for surgical patients. Visitation is limited to one visitor (the patient's designated driver) before and after surgery for outpatient surgical patients. The visitation policies protect patients and staff from the spread of COVID-19.
Our additional safety measures will be in place as long as needed to reassure the public that it is safe to access care at our facilities.
