Hopedale Medical Complex is prepared to handle patients with COVID-19 symptoms without them having to come into the hospital.
We are utilizing our Emergency Room Mobile Triage tent and vehicle triage area to screen and evaluate patients exhibiting influenza like respiratory symptoms and keep them outside of the hospital walls unless necessary. This will allow us to protect patients and staff from potential exposure and still provide the same excellent care to the patient.
We encourage patients who are experiencing symptoms and are coming to the ER to call 309.449.3321 so the nursing staff knows of your pending arrival and can meet you at your vehicle.
PLEASE DO NOT go to the emergency room or the physician’s office unless the symptoms are truly urgent or an emergency.
If you are sick with COVID-19 or think you might have it, follow the steps in the article below to help protect other people in your home and community.
