Updated: March 18, 2020
The safety of our visitors, patients, employees, physicians, and local communities remains our highest priority and we are taking steps to limit the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) while continuing to provide care for those in need.

We will continue to update this webpage about hospital changes in response to the COVID-19 outbreak as more information becomes available, but we encourage you to please visit the CDC or the Arizona State Health Department for the latest general information on COVID-19.
