Jefferson Healthcare is closely monitoring evolving developments with COVID-19. We are working closely with the Department of Public Health and will continue to follow their guidance. We use established protocols to detect and isolate any patient who might meet infection criteria established by the CDC. Extensive and thorough procedures are in place to ensure the health and safety of our community.
If you have concerns regarding the virus or think you have been exposed, we have established a dedicated COVID-19/Respiratory Illness Nurse Consult Line 360.344.3094 to answer specific questions regarding the virus and address exposure concerns. this line will operate Monday – Friday 8:00 am – 5:00 pm but is subject to change with notice. It is important not to go to the doctor’s office or Emergency Department and potentially expose others, especially vulnerable populations.
Out of an abundance of caution to protect our most medically vulnerable community members, we are discouraging unnecessary visits to the hospital, including the cafeteria until further notice.
