Make your health and safety a priority. Continue taking precautions to stay well.
With COVID cases on the rise, Dignity Health Central Coast wants to remind you that the coronavirus pandemic is not over. Our hospitals and health centers are prepared to care for you, but we all need to continue to do our part to stay safe. Please watch this short video featuring Scott Robertson, MD, Dignity Health Division Chief Medical Officer.
As we begin resuming services that were paused as the COVID-19 pandemic developed, we continue to adhere to guidance provided by national and state health officials to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.
As always, your health and well-being are our focus, so we've taken steps to ensure your continued safety:
Your health is essential, so don't put off getting the care you need.
Our health care providers are in constant communication with local health officials on coronavirus testing. Some of our divisions are offering drive-thru testing services, or outpatient clinics for testing. Check with your health care provider for details.
A test is required in advance of any procedure scheduled in the hospital. Check with your physician’s office if you have questions. Learn more about how we are resuming services.
Additional information on testing is available through the CDC website.
In accordance with provisions in the CARES Act, the “cash” price for COVID-19 testing is available here. The actual price a patient may pay will likely be lower, as this price does not take into account insurance coverage or financial assistance a patient may be eligible for. Where testing is available at our own facilities it can typically be provided at a reduced cost. If in-house testing is not available, testing may be performed by an outside lab which sets the price for its test. These cash prices are only for the COVID-19 diagnostic testing itself and are not inclusive of the diagnosis and/or treatment of other medical conditions. Charges are continually reviewed and subject to change.
Seek medical attention if you develop emergency warning signs for COVID-19. Emergency warning signs include:
