St. John’s Episcopal Hospital Welcomes Patients Back for In-Person Medical Care at Hospital and Its Outpatient Primary and Specialty Care Locations

Far Rockaway, New York, June 15, 2020 — Safety measures have been put in place at St. John’s Episcopal Hospital, its Emergency Room, and its outpatient primary and specialty care sites to ensure the well being of patients who want to see their health care provider in-person. St. John’s outpatient primary and specialty care sites located throughout the peninsula, and the hospital’s emergency department are open and community members should not delay in getting the in-person medical care they need.

The hospital and its community practices have enacted several safety measures including:

  • Providing each patient and medical staff with appropriate personal protective equipment
  • Practicing social distancing
  • Prescreening sick patients over the phone
  • Using separate entrances and exits for those who are sick when appropriate
  • Swabbing sick patients in parking lots when appropriate
  • Thoroughly disinfecting medical offices and medical equipment
  • Separating patients with COVID-19 symptoms from other patients in the Emergency Room
  • Providing COVID-19 testing to patients prior to performing elective surgeries
