As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to rapidly evolve, Medical City Healthcare has instituted further heightened precautions to safeguard our patients, colleagues and physicians.
All providers, including physicians and staff, will now be screened using screening questions and a temperature check each time they enter our facilities. Physicians and staff will also be asked to complete hand hygiene with alcohol-based sanitizer before entering.
Thank you for your support and cooperation as we work together to slow the spread of COVID-19.
