Posted

PARIS, Tenn. (March 19, 2020) – HCMC Surgery Center updated its visitation policy effective Thursday, March 19 in conjunction with the visitation changes that occurred at Henry County Medical Center in continued efforts to prepare for novel coronavirus (COVID-19).  

Their new visitation policy is as follows:

How you can help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses such as Coronavirus:

Again, if you believe you meet the criteria for the coronavirus including having the symptoms, traveling outside the United States or in the domestic hot spots associated with COVID – 19, or being in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, please call your primary care provider to arrange for medical evaluation and testing.  If you present to our Emergency Department without a provider order for testing, you will be registered as an ER patient and be treated and charged as an ER patient, as well as masked and isolated. If you have an order for testing from your provider, you will be instructed to park in the ER parking lot and a clinical staff member will come out and do the testing through our outpatient lab services.

HCMC is making every effort to educate and inform the public on ways to remain healthy through our website and our social media outlets, including specifically rigorous and frequent hand washing.  Please check back often for updates including a section dedicated to COVID-19 located here: https://www.hcmc-tn.org/coronavirus-covid-19-information/ .  For additional information, watch a video from our Community Pop Up event on coronavirus here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-iA5IPc4G8&t=3s 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your health care provider.  To learn more, go to our website at www.hcmc-tn.org or go to the CDC website at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/index.html
