Samaritan Medical Center (Hospital) Returns to Facemasks-Required
Published on: November 29, 2023
There is an uptick in COVID positivity cases at the hospital among inpatients and emergency department patients, as well in the community overall. Following our Infection Prevention source control policy, Samaritan Medical Center (the hospital), including the Walker Center for Cancer Care, will now require facemasks in all patient care areas and public spaces within the hospital. Long term care remain masks-required.
This does not impact Samaritan’s outpatient locations including specialty clinics, family health centers or lab and imaging locations.
Thank you for your patience as we try to minimize the spread of the virus and keep our patients, visitors and staff protected.
Any further updates to this change will be added to samaritanhealth.com/news.
