Safety First


Your Health Can’t Wait

We are moving forward, in a measured way, to once again serve all patients now that we have data showing the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic is behind us. As a first step, we are again scheduling elective procedures. With the safety of our patients and caregivers top of mind, we are taking steps to ensure it continues to be safe to receive care at Sequoia Hospital.

Sequoia Hospital is open and, your safety is our priority. We are instituting the following steps:

  • Adhering to the guidance and established criteria of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. Surgeon General, the American Hospital Association and the leading national associations of nurses, surgeons and anesthesiologists.

  • Every staff member, patient and visitor will be required to wear a mask and follow social distancing guidelines.

  • Prioritization of procedures, reduced patient volume for physicians and caregivers, and social distancing guidelines for visitors.

  • Careful monitoring of the number of COVID-19 patients in the community – should the numbers increase again, we will reinstate our COVID-19 response procedures.

  • Enhanced cleanings and disinfection throughout our facilities and in all operating rooms between procedures and at the end of every day.

  • Virtual Care visits with your doctor when appropriate..
