Your Safety is Our Top Priority

At Southwest General, providing safe, quality care has always been our top priority. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, please be assured that we are taking the proper steps to keep patients, visitors and staff safe—so that we may continue to provide the care and attention you deserve:

What We’re Doing to Keep You Safe:

  • Masking – In keeping with guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Ohio Department of Health,we will continue to require staff, patients arriving for routine appointments and procedures and visitors to wear masks (even if you are vaccinated) in all Southwest General facilities.
  • Visitor Restrictions – We have Visitor Restrictions in place to help protect everyone as we continue to provide care. Please take a moment to review the Visitor Restrictions before coming to the hospital to visit family or friends or accompany loved ones to an appointment.
  • Social Distancing – We continue to encourage everyone in our facilities to practice social distancing.
  • Hand Hygiene – We use proper handwashing techniques to minimize the spread of infection.
  • Enhanced cleaning – We routinely clean and disinfect spaces, equipment and furniture throughout the day.

If you have an in-person appointment scheduled at one of our facilities and if you have cold or flu-like symptoms such as a fever, cough, congestion or runny nose, please call your doctor’s office before your appointment. Your physician’s office can provide guidance about whether you should come to the appointment and can order testing if appropriate.

If you have active COVID-19 symptoms but don’t have a scheduled appointment with a provider, please call your primary care doctor for guidance on what to do.

Please note:

Southwest General's Main Campus and Brunswick Emergency Departments DO NOT offer rapid COVID-19 testing. Information for COVID-19 testing at Southwest General. >>>
