New Entrance During Construction

Beginning Monday December 28th, 2020, patient drop-off and pickup will take place on the east side of our building on Cushing Drive. We ask that patients please enter Cushing Drive on the north end by Jackson’s Corner and Central Oregon Radiology Associates.  Entering Cushing Drive from the north end will lead you to our temporary entrance for drop-off and pickup.  We will have someone at the entrance to greet you.

Patient rides can park in our main parking lot, along the street, or across 27th at the Church of the Nazarene.

Steps we are taking to keep you safe from COVID-19

We are following the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) and the governors mandates regarding COVID-19 for individual behavior and travel mandates. Please visit the OHA website here for more information: OHA COVID-19 Updates

In these uncertain times, your safety is our utmost concern. You may be hesitant to seek medical care, but rest assured that we are uniquely positioned to deliver high-quality care while minimizing exposure to infection.

Our surgery center is a controlled space, staffed by providers who understand and have experience in managing infection and disease. Providing exceptional infection control precautions is simply a daily way of life for us.

NOTE: If you are having flu-like symptoms, such as fever, chills, muscle aches, difficulty breathing, recent cough, headache, sore throat or a sudden loss of taste or smell shortness of breath, please call your primary care provider.

Please be aware that we are taking further steps to ensure your safety and comfort.

Step 1: Our Patients

  • We are taking extra precautions to pre-screen patients prior to their arrival at the center. We are rescheduling any patient who does not meet our strict health guidelines.
  • When the patient arrives, we will have staff greeting you at the front door to ask you a series of COVID-19 screening questions.
  • Patients will need to wear a protective covering over the nose and mouth. A mask will be provided when entering the building.
  • Patient escorts will be asked to wait in their cars during procedures unless they are needed to answer questions. They will be called to pick up the patient at the front door or the designated pick-up zone and will be given discharge instructions then.
  • If a patient escort needs to enter the center, they must undergo the same health screening patients will be subject to and follow all applicable center safety measures.

Step 2: Our Staff

  • All center staff will undergo daily temperature checks and screenings for symptoms of illness.
  • Clinical and business staff will wear surgical masks at all times.
  • Social distancing measures have been implemented. This includes:
    • limiting the number of patients in the center at any given time
    • spacing out chairs so they are at least six feet apart in the waiting area
    • minimizing patient touchpoints
  • Visitors will be prohibited unless absolutely necessary.

Step 3: Our Center

  • We follow nationally recommended best practices to keep our centers clean and safe.
  • Only EPA-registered cleaning products are used, and waiting areas are cleaned at least twice a day. This includes high touch surfaces such as chair arms, doorknobs, tabletops, countertops, handles, sinks and faucets.
  • We clean every procedure room both before and after every patient. In addition, we clean all of our public areas throughout the day and are minimizing traffic in those areas.
  • Tissues and sanitizer will be available near the front desk.

Our cleaning procedures adhere to the most stringent Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations and are regularly reviewed by both CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) and our accreditation organizations (AAAHC or Joint Commission).

COVID-19 Rescheduling

Your safety is of the utmost
importance to us.
At the recommendation of
the health department, we
are currently rescheduling
procedures to help limit the
spread of COVID-19.
We will contact our patients to
reschedule procedures.
