Patients & Visitors

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The number one goal for us is, and has always been, patient safety and the well-being of our community. We want you to know that the hospital remains opens and that we are following all measures put into place by the CDC and the Governor's office.  

With regard to safety, the cleaning and infection control practices at NOCHS are highly regulated and exceed requirements.

• NOCHS is strictly following the Governor’s executive order initiated Monday, March 16 that drastically restricts visitation with minimal exceptions (see below).
• NOCHS is also carefully screening every person (staff, patients and visitors) entering our facility. Those who do not pass the screening are turned away.

With regard to the community’s well-being we set up a remote test site to draw symptomatic people away from the hospital for testing.

• This protects patients who need to access our hospital-based services for routine or emergent care.
• Our services are open — ER, inpatient care and ICU, surgical services, FBU, imaging, lab, sleep lab, Dunewood Pharmacy, Urgent Care and Breast Evaluation Center.
