March 16, 2020
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Atlantic, IA — Cass County Health System has relocated multiple providers within Atlantic Medical Center in an effort to separate patients who are being tested for COVID-19 from other patients. This specifically includes Suite C of Atlantic Medical Center; OB/GYN providers have been moved out of this area in an effort to protect expectant mothers, who are considered high risk for severe illness from COVID-19. Other providers have also temporarily moved within the facility. The process for checking in remains the same, and nursing staff will still escort patients to the appropriate exam rooms.
Atlantic Medical Center Rapid Care is still operating as usual; AMC Rapid Care patients are seen in a separate hallway from those being tested for COVID-19 testing.
All patients who meet the current guidelines for COVID-19 testing are directed to call 712-243-2850 BEFORE coming to any CCHS facility. These patients will be directed to a separate entrance.
