Latest COVID-19 Update from Evangelical Community Hospital
EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT ALTERNATIVE EXAM SITE
Evangelical Community Hospital continues to plan for a potential surge in confirmed or suspected COVID-19 cases. To manage times when the current COVID-19 Emergency Department exam area (the ambulance garage bay) is at capacity, tents are being erected in the ambulance driveway on the north side of the Hospital.
The tents are being installed today, Monday, April 6, 2020, and the site should be available as needed beginning Tuesday, April 7, 2020.
ELECTIVE SURGERIES AND PROCEDURES
Evangelical has made the decision to continue cancelation of all elective surgeries and procedures through the week of April 13, 2020. A decision on these types of surgeries will be made week-by-week. Any reopening of elective surgeries will be clearly communicated, and staff will contact patients to reschedule when it is permissible to begin offering those types of procedures.
