Patient Care and Surgery Changes
Resuming service with a focus on safety
OhioHealth has resumed elective procedures and in-office care, while continuing to put the safety of our patients, associates and providers first.
That means if you’ve been waiting for care, there’s no better time to call your provider. Here’s what you need to know.
Patient Care Information
The best way to seek nonurgent care now is to call your providers office. They may recommend an office visit or one of our virtual care options, like telehealth video visits or a primary care E-Visit. Use our Find a Doctor search tool if you need one.
If you are experiencing life-threatening symptoms, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency department. Our hospital and freestanding emergency departments are prepared to safely address any emergency.
Visitor restrictions will not be changing at this time. See our visitor policies.
OhioHealth has resumed outpatient surgeries and procedures that do not require an overnight stay.
- You will receive information directly from your physician's office about your upcoming procedures, and where to go if you need testing.
- If you are scheduled for a surgery or procedure with anesthesia or sedation at an OhioHealth facility, you must be tested for COVID-19 within 72 hours of your procedure.
OhioHealth physician offices and ambulatory locations have resumed in-office care.
- Please call your provider or location to confirm hours of operation.
- If you have been putting off seeking care, we encourage you to reach out to your physician as soon as possible to schedule an appointment. We anticipate a sharp increase in demand for care as more offices open and more services become available.
