“Our top priority remains the health and well-being of our patients, staff and our community members,” said Matt Heyn, CEO for DCMH. “This decision comes after thoughtful deliberation by the DCMH Administration and Medical Staff teams. Although this year’s health fairs have been postponed, our hospital and clinics remain open and safe.”
Multiple protocols have been implemented at DCMH and its clinics to ensure the safety of community members when receiving care. There are verbal screenings conducted upon entry, visitor restrictions, social distanced lobbies and waiting rooms, masks and face coverings being worn, sanitization stations and more.
Telehealth options have also been expanded and are available at all DCMH Primary Care Clinics; giving patients the option to connect virtually with their providers and care team.
“Prevention is an important step in your health care journey; so please, don’t delay care,” said Heyn. “We know that times are uncertain, but we are not done caring and we are committed to providing you with the care that you need, from people you can trust, close to home.”
