Mary Rutan Hospital has resumed medically necessary outpatient surgeries, non-urgent provider visits, well-checks, well-baby visits, imaging procedures and diagnostic testing with extensive processes in place to keep patients and employees safe.
As a precaution, surgical patients at Mary Rutan Hospital now undergo COVID-19 testing before surgery and all previous COVID-19 precautions remain in effect, including a restricted visitor policy.
Patients and visitors must wear a mask or face covering at the hospital and all offsite locations. Mary Rutan Hospital is requesting that patients and visitors wear their own mask or face covering.

Several additional safety measures have been implemented to protect patients and employees during the worldwide pandemic. These include enhanced and frequent sanitizing, social distancing, testing and telemedicine options.
We have precautions and protocols in place to protect our patients and employees. Patients can safely seek healthcare services in our emergency department, urgent care, physician offices, clinics, and hospital.
