Additional Clinics Implemented for Patient Safety

The following clinics have been implemented to continue to meet patient needs while ensuring a safe environment.

Acute Respiratory Clinic

An acute respiratory clinic has been established at our Belmond campus.  This clinic is for patients who do not pass the current screening requirements and based on their illness or telehealth visit need to have a more comprehensive evaluation. 

To ensure safety, patients will be directed to a designated area of the facility for their respiratory clinic appointment.  Upon arrival, patients will park in the library parking lot north of the hospital.  A nurse will come to the patient’s vehicle, provide them with a mask, and then escort them to the testing area within the facility.
 

Pediatric Clinic

Similar to the acute respiratory clinic, a pediatric screening clinic has been established at our Belmond campus.  This clinic is for pediatric patients who do not pass the current screening requirements and based on their illness or telehealth visit need to have a more comprehensive evaluation.

To ensure safety, pediatric patients and their parent will be directed to a designated area of the facility for their appointment.  Upon arrival, the parent should park near the Belmond Clinic. A nurse will come to the vehicle, provide masks for the adult and child, and then escort them to the testing area within the facility.
 

Curbside Lab

A curbside lab has been established at our Clarion campus in the blue lot on the west side of the building. The goal is to minimize social interaction for patient safety.  Blood draws will be privately performed within the curbside lab trailer. Supplies will also be provided for urine specimens to collect at home and return for evaluation.
