What steps is SBGHC taking to ensure the safety of our patients and staff?

Hospital Entrance Restrictions

  • Access to each of our four hospital sites has been restricted to one entrance.
  • All patients entering the hospital will be greeted by a SBGHC staff member who will proactively check for symptoms and ask about recent travel history and contacts.
  • Staff and physicians enter the building through a separate entrance.

Separation of Emergency Department Waiting Room Areas

  • We have created designated waiting areas in our Emergency Departments for patients presenting with respiratory symptoms to ensure the separation of people with and without respiratory symptoms.

Visitor Restrictions

  • To ensure the safety of our patients, visitors and staff, visiting restrictions that have been put in place in response to the COVID-19 pandemic will be relaxed in a careful and gradual way, beginning on Monday, June 29, 2020 with visiting for admitted Acute Care patients. Click here for more information.
