During the current coronavirus pandemic, we are guided by our long-held mission to treat every patient with clinical excellence and compassionate care.
With your health as our priority, we assure you that St. Vincent Charity Medical Center facilities provide a safe place for you to receive care. There are simple, proven ways to protect ourselves from the coronavirus:
Staying six feet apart
With these three things as our guiding principles, it’s time to get back to what matters most — your health.
We understand the fears you may have of exposure to the coronavirus and urge you to follow CDC recommendations, including the use of face coverings and frequent hand washing, to help keep you safe. However, we urge you to not ignore your overall health during this pandemic.
Full services available
Effective June 2, 2020 the Ohio Department of Health announced that health care providers may resume all surgeries and procedures that had previously been delayed. Your health, and that of your loved ones, is too important to postpone regular preventative care, diagnostic tests and follow-up visits.
In-person appointments are necessary in many cases for our doctors and caregivers to manage your health or diagnose and treat your condition.
