Coronavirus Update
3/16/2020
As you are most likely aware, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) has spread to our area, with diagnoses in the counties that we serve. Rest assured, that we are in communication with the PA Department of Health and continue to take a proactive approach to keep our patients, employees and communities healthy and safe.
 
The virus is thought to spread primarily by person-to-person contact; through a cough, a sneeze, etc., OR the virus may be transmitted onto objects (doorknobs, shopping carts, etc.) by an infected person to a healthy individual. 
 
We are asking our patients to follow the guidelines set in place by the Department of Health to help prevent the spread of this disease and others. However, the most important thing to remember is: If you are sick, Stay Home and Call Us First!
 
Without question, serious and life-threatening illnesses always need the fastest and most advanced medical care available and that means immediate treatment in an Emergency Room. Remember if you feel like your life is in danger immediately dial 9-1-1.
