Dear Patients and Community Members,
We are mindful of the impact that the COVID-19 Pandemic has had on you and your family. At Emanate Health, we know exactly what you’re going through because we are all adapting to the “new normal.” Our top priority remains to provide quality health care services in a safe, compassionate environment to our communities in the San Gabriel Valley. So here are three things that we want you to know:
We Are Open. We Are Safe. We Are Clean.
We Are Open: Thanks to an announcement by the governor, we are now offering a full range of elective surgeries at Inter-Community Hospital, Queen of the Valley Hospital and Foothill Presbyterian Hospital. Please don’t delay the care you need. Call your doctor to make sure that this is the right time to schedule a procedure before your condition becomes more severe. If you don’t have a physician, use our Find a Doctor tool.
We Are Safe: Emanate Health goes to great lengths to contain the coronavirus, building on guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the California Department of Public Health. Our COVID-19 patients are placed in isolation units and transported in separate elevators. We are also limiting guests from visiting our hospitals. Everyone who comes to Emanate Health is required to wear a surgical mask, is temperature screened for COVID-19 and encouraged to social distance.
We Are Clean: We have implemented some of the toughest anti-virus cleaning practices to protect the health and wellness of everyone. We are disinfecting our facilities with a solution that kills viruses in 30 seconds and using hospital-grade air-purifiers and UV light to neutralize pathogens like COVID-19. We are also wiping down counters, hand rails, doorknobs and other high-traffic areas multiple times a day.
We want you to know that our doctors, nurses and health care staff are here to provide emergency, primary and specialty care for you and your family. While we are all told to stay a part because of COVID-19, we find that our community has grown closer and stronger together. Thank you for supporting our health care heroes and always trusting us with your care. On behalf of our 3,700 employees and more than 1,000 physicians, welcome back to Emanate Health!
Always there, whatever it takes,
