Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

The health of our patients, visitors, employees and physicians is our highest priority. We are working closely with the RI Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to respond to any potential coronavirus cases in our community. 

Our hospital is following the latest CDC and public agency guidelines and are prepared to identify, isolate and treat patients who seek care at our facility. Our staff also has received additional training.

If you are experiencing respiratory symptoms, please call ahead. Please do not go directly to your doctor’s office, hospital emergency department or urgent care without calling first as many people can isolate at home without being evaluated in person (see additional guidance below).

In our emergency department, we ask all arriving patients about any recent international travel and if they have any symptoms consistent with  COVID-19, such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath. Advise your healthcare provider if you have traveled to these affected countries.
