Coronavirus (COVID-19)

At Inspira Health, we are committed to keeping you informed about the new coronavirus (COVID-19).

Our clinical leadership teams continue to closely monitor the situation and put policies and procedures in place to protect patients, visitors and staff. Our facilities continue to follow the most current guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local health authorities to appropriately screen, isolate and manage patients who meet the criteria.

Anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms should seek care as they normally would, immediately alerting the health care facility or health care provider if they have recently been in close contact with someone who has been under investigation for, or is a confirmed case of, COVID-19. Anyone concerned that they or a loved one might be displaying clinical distress (such as breathing difficulties) should call 9-1-1 as they normally would.

It’s important to understand that this situation continues to evolve. For the most current information about COVID-19 please visit the CDC website.
