If you are having an emergency, we are ready to care for you
While the global spread of COVID-19 has made a tremendous impact on how hospitals and physicians conduct patient care, what will never change is HCA Healthcare and Wesley Healthcare’s commitment to the safety of every patient and care facility. While our hospitals are caring for patients who have tested positive for coronavirus, we are also caring for many other patients including those in our ERs who are experiencing chest pain, stroke symptoms or other medical emergencies.
Our hospitals have strong protocols in place and follow guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Well before COVID-19 was declared a pandemic, HCA Healthcare had already taken exceptional measures to face the virus head on, and plan, prepare and mitigate its potential threat. HCA Healthcare and Wesley Healthcare are proactively engaged in the safe management of the coronavirus, and we have put a strong emphasis on ensuring that protections are in place at our sites of care. This means that our emergency departments continue to be a safe place to seek medical attention, no matter what your health concern.
Our facilities are staffed with experienced clinicians who are at the ready to assist patients with emergency concerns, whether COVID-19 related or not.
Access to emergency services remains available to all, and patients with urgent health concerns, whether COVID-19 related or not, should not put off medical attention. If you are experiencing emergency symptoms of any kind, such as chest pain, shortness of breath, sudden dizziness, weakness or numbness in limbs, it is both safe and necessary to seek medical attention. We’re here for you.
