Heart of The Rockies Regional Medical Center has instituted new precautions to deal with the possibility of the coronavirus showing up in the Upper Arkansas Valley.
The hospital has implemented a vehicle-screening procedure for those with respiratory symptoms who arrive at any of HRRMC’s locations, where you can call each location directly, and a designated person will conduct an initial medical screening at your vehicle to determine next steps.
During business hours, please contact Public Health for a phone medical screening to determine if you meet criteria to be tested: 719-539-4510
During after hours/non-business hours, please contact CO HELP at 1-877-462-2911.
Also, the Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center has some visitor restrictions in place: Only one symptom free visitor or family member per patient allowed in the Oncology/Infusion Center, as well as the Family Birthing Center. Further restrictions may be necessary in the future.
Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center is working closely with the Colorado Department of Public Health, Colorado Hospital Association, Chaffee County Public Health, Emergency Management and Columbine Manor to assure consistent communication and approach to the evolution of the coronavirus.
HRRMC suggests that people follow appropriate hand hygiene, and follow respiratory etiquette when visiting the hospital or clinics.
