Cascade Medical Center continues to be fully operational and our health care team stands ready to respond to any injury, infection or illness. The COVID-19 epidemic has prompted us to put special precautions and readiness into place, so that we can keep the community and our staff safe and healthy. Here are a few things you should know:
Please know that our providers, nurses, and staff continuously train and prepare to take great care of our patients. In response to the current situation, we have set up a telemedicine exam room so that we can conduct confidential/secure patient visits over phone/video if the provider thinks that is appropriate given the patient’s needs. We have also developed contingency plans for small, medium, and large outbreak scenarios which address equipment, supplies, staffing, and expanding medical operations. I think we are as well or better prepared as anyone at this time.
Please continue to follow the advice we’re all getting to keep ourselves healthy:
Finally – stay positive. Look out for your neighbors. Deliver food and treats to those shut-in or self-quarantined. Let us know how we can help. We’re all in this together.
