COVID-19: Vaccines, boosters, testing, and visitor guidelines. Please use ER for emergencies only.

As you may be aware, many local businesses are facing staffing challenges – and local pharmacies are no exception. These developments are seriously impacting patients’ access to needed medications. Many community members are experiencing wait times for prescriptions of at least a week or more.

Action you can take to help avoid delays

You can reduce the risk of delays in obtaining prescriptions from your community pharmacy by requesting refills seven to 10 days before you run out of your medication. You also can discuss mail-order prescription program options with your insurance or healthcare provider. Please keep in mind that wait times for new prescriptions will be varied and unpredictable; please discuss options with your physician when they prescribe you a new medication.

Our No. 1 priority is the safety and well-being of our patients. As valued patients and community members, PeaceHealth is here to guide you through these challenges to ensure you have access to much-needed medications.

  • Prior to scheduling an appointment: If you have a fever, cough or other symptoms of possible infection, please notify us when you schedule an appointment and before you arrive. If you’re having a medical emergency, call 911.
  • Bring a mask: For everyone's safety, masks are required in all PeaceHealth facilities regardless of vaccination status.
  • Entrance screening: Upon arrival, everyone will be screened for symptoms. 
  • Vaccines: Information about COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters can be found at peacehealth.org/vaccines

General Surgery

 
Surgical Care for Special Needs

Illnesses or injuries can often be treated with relatively simple measures such as medication, rest, changes in diet, exercise or other non-invasive therapy. But, in some cases, surgery is the only answer.

A few examples of procedures commonly performed by General Surgeons include:

  • hernia repair
  • stomach surgery
  • hemorrhoids
  • removal of the appendix
  • removal of the gall bladder
  • breast surgery
  • colonoscopy

Some surgeries have to happen quickly on short notice or in emergencies. Other types of surgery can be planned in advance. If you need an operation, your primary-care doctor will refer you to a general surgeon. After making sure that surgery is the best option for you, the surgeon will help you prepare for the operation.

Where your surgery is done will depend on the type of surgery. If it's relatively minor, it may be done in a procedure room at the doctor's office. Major surgery is usually done in a hospital or outpatient surgery center.

Also depending on the type of surgery and your health, you may be able to go home the same day after your surgery. Or you may need to stay in the hospital to recover.

Surgeons use "minimally invasive" tools and techniques whenever possible so that you heal faster.
