Virginia Mason Franciscan Health has been, and is continuing to take, a number of steps to make sure that our hospitals and Emergency Services departments are implementing the top safety measures possible for patients diagnosed with COVID-19 or facing another medical emergency. As we look ahead toward a gradual reopening of other procedures, these safety measures are the cornerstone in our ability to do so.
We will continue to take significant steps to make sure it is safe to be treated at our care facilities. Here are some of the key safety measures we are taking across our hospital system to ensure all patients and staff remain safe:
Our clinics are open to take care of your health care needs whether in person or virtually. We continue to offer virtual visits as a convenient option for our patients in addition to in-person visits. Call your provider to determine which option is right for your next visit. You can also use Virginia Mason Franciscan Health’s provider search tool to see which providers are offering virtual visits.
If you have mild respiratory symptoms suggesting Coronavirus (COVID-19) such as cough, low-grade fever or mild respiratory problems, you can schedule a Virtual Urgent Care visit as well.
