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 – Masks are still required in all nursing unit patient rooms and hallways, in patient care areas and in diagnostic testing/procedural areas (e.g., radiology and Cath Lab, etc.). Masks are not required in public areas.
  • 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.

For Everyone’s Safety, Remember:

  • 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 are sick and/or concerned that you may have COVID-19, self-quarantine and seek help from your physician.
  • Do NOT come to the ER for COVID-19 testing. We will not provide COVID-19 testing in our ERs unless a patient is admitted. There are a variety of testing options available in the community.
  • Practice proper precautions, including handwashing and social distancing, and, most importantly, get vaccinated and boosted.

Thank you for helping us to make a difference in our community.

A Proper Farewell!
