This is an unprecedented time, but we’re here for you. We have built our reputation navigating unchartered waters and are proud to be on the frontline of defense.
During the COVID-19 crisis, our patients and their families remain our priority. To ensure access to care while minimizing potential COVID-19 exposure, we’re working closely with internal experts, hospital partners and health care authorities at the national, state and county levels to implement and adapt care protocols in real time. Despite this global pandemic, we’re also focused on the future; we’re working collaboratively across the continuum of care to better understand ─ and reduce ─ the impact of COVID-19 on the patients we serve.
Our clinicians have long relied on telehealth to remove barriers and build bridges to world-class care. We are well prepared to support our hospital partners, referring physicians and patients with proven virtual care solutions during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond, including crisis triage.Telemedicine Solutions

- Modification of patient schedules and/or clinic hours to enable social distancing
