How PeaceHealth is keeping you safe during your visit


PeaceHealth remains committed to providing the care our patients depend on. There are several steps we have taken at all medical centers and clinics to keep you safe when you visit.

Get the care you need

Staying home during the COVID-19 pandemic helps to stop the spread of the virus,
but it may also mean delaying care for some people. Your health can’t wait.

What we’re doing to keep you and us safe:

Temperature Checks

On arriving at any PeaceHealth location, everyone will receive a temperature check. Anyone with an elevated temperature will be connected with appropriate care.

Face Coverings

All patients and visitors are required to wear a mask or cloth face covering in every PeaceHealth building. We request you bring your own, but one will be provided, if needed.

Physical Distancing

Throughout our facilities, you can expect new reminder signs as well as some wide-spaced seating and other means to support safe physical distancing. 

COVID-19 Testing

Every patient who is admitted to the hospital or is undergoing surgery or an invasive procedure is tested for COVID-19. If you see us at one of our clinics and your doctor thinks you need a COVID-19 test, you’ll get one.

 

Visitor Restrictions

Most visitors are currently not permitted in our medical centers. No visitors are allowed in clinics except for those accompanying patients needing assistance.

PPE Usage

All PeaceHealth caregivers are required to wear masks, and those in patient care areas are wearing additional required personal protective equipment. 

Dedicated Staff and Units

Patients with COVID-19 or its symptoms are treated by dedicated staff in isolated units with heightened infection prevention measures.

Sanitized Surfaces

In all areas, our environmental services teams continue to ensure surfaces are sanitized to PeaceHealth’s strict medical standards.
