Your Health is Essential
Your health needs shouldn’t be ignored, even during a pandemic. You can and should keep your regularly scheduled appointments, especially for immunizations, screenings, preventive care and chronic disease management. If you’ve put off seeing your provider, don’t wait. We provide safe options to get care for acute and chronic conditions. Our providers are here to care for you.
It’s Safe to Seek Care
Since the beginning of the pandemic, we’ve cared for injuries and illnesses that just couldn’t wait. From delivering babies to setting broken bones to treating heart attacks, we always put health and safety first.
Now, we’ve instituted new safety policies and practices that put the health of our patients first. From wellness visits to emergency needs, we’re ready to care for you.
We’re taking these safety measures:
- Everyone at a Sanford Health location is required to wear a face mask whenever possible, even if they’ve received the COVID-19 vaccine or have already recovered from the virus. This policy follows guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
- Employees and patients undergo temperature screenings before entering a facility.
- All locations are following CDC cleaning requirements and cleaning and sanitizing several times a day.
- Social distancing is in effect in all waiting areas.
- Sanford Health and the Good Samaritan Society have worked hard to ensure we have a steady supply of personal protective equipment (PPE) for the safety of our providers, caregivers, patients and residents. Learn more about our PPE supply.
- We’re limiting personnel and visitors at our locations.
- Hospitals have separate designated areas for COVID-19 patients.
Avoiding care can lead to serious future health problems:
- It’s more important than ever to take care of your chronic conditions, such as diabetes, heart failure or high blood pressure. These conditions can make you more vulnerable to severe COVID-19 complications.
- If children fall behind on their immunizations, we could see outbreaks of vaccine-preventable illnesses next fall. Learn more at the American Academy of Pediatrics.
- If children fall behind on their immunizations, we could see outbreaks of vaccine-preventable illnesses this fall. Learn why vaccines are more important than ever this year.
- Don’t put off your cancer screenings. The rate of occurring cancers has not changed. The earlier we can identify cancer, the more treatable it is.
