Enhanced Screening at CCHS Entrances

March 19, 2020

Beginning Thursday, March 19, CCHS will be implementing additional screening measures to protect the health of all patients and staff.  All patients, visitors and vendors must enter through either the Main Entrance or the Emergency Department Entrance.

Patients will be met by staff who will take their temperature (forehead) and ask a few questions about their recent travel and health.  Patients who are determined to be at increased risk for COVID-19 will be asked to wear a mask and directed to Suite C, which will be utilized only for COVID-19 patients.

OB and other providers normally located in Suite C have been relocated to other suites.

Additional Notes:

  • Beginning Thursday, March 19, Atlantic Medical Center hours will be 7 am – 7 pm Monday through Friday.
  • The clinic will be open Saturday mornings for acute illnesses only (no wellness appointments) from 8 am – noon.
  • Weekend care for patients needing to be screened for COVID-19 will be available from 10 am – 6 pm Saturdays and Sundays.
