Salina Regional Pulmonology & Sleep Medicine
Message to Patients
Salina Regional Health Center and its affiliated clinics are screening patients and visitors as they come into our clinic facilities. In order to help protect our patients and staff from exposure during the coronavirus outbreak, Salina Regional Health Center clinics will screen all patients and visitors entering our clinic facilities starting Thursday, March 19th. We ask that if a patient needs assistance to/at an appointment that there only be one person/visitor accompanying the patient, who is not ill.
Screening is different from testing for the virus. Staff screeners will ask all visitors and patients a series of questions related to if they are experiencing symptoms such as fever, cough or shortness of breath. They will also be asked questions related to previous travel and previous exposure to anyone who has traveled or been diagnosed with COVID-19.
Starting March 19th, all Salina Regional Pulmonology patients will need to enter the Salina Medical Arts Building through the north entrance.
We appreciate your help and understanding as we work to slow the spread of COVID-19. Protecting the health of our community is our first priority.
