COVID Update: November 16,2020
To our Patients & Families,
Outstanding patient care is at the heart of everything we do, no matter the circumstances. As cases of COVID-19 continue to increase throughout the state of Michigan, we remain committed to your care. We know that cancer isn’t waiting for COVID-19 to pass and we will stand by your side at every step of your journey.
We have implemented many safety measures in response to the pandemic. These include:
– Screening everyone who enters our facilities
– Testing patients before surgery
– Supporting social distancing
– Providing appropriate personal protective equipment
– Sanitizing every exam room prior to every patient’s visit
– Conducting additional sanitization
To ensure staff and the next patient is as safe as possible, we insist all patients wear masks 100% of the time they are in the building; this includes while alone in the exam room. Please understand aerosol hangs in the air long after you have finished your visit.
We thank you for adhering to the guidelines set forth to keep patients and staff safe. No doubt these have been challenging for all affected and we acknowledge that many sacrifices have been made. While we look forward to a time when we can loosen restrictions, the current rise in COVID-19 cases means that we must be more diligent than ever.
We will continue to enforce safety measures and follow infection prevention guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC). We are working closely with our federal state and local partners to respond to this pandemic update contingency plans and stay informed with the most up-to-date information.
We ask every member of our community to take the precautions necessary to keep themselves and others safe. This pandemic has been a challenging time for us as individuals and as a community, but we must remember that it is not over.
Thank you for your support of us and your fellow community members during these challenging times. The members of our team remain resilient and committed to you in the treatment of your breast disease or breast cancer.
