Elective Surgery Safety with Jeff Welch, CEO of Tenet Healthcare Miami/Dade GroupMay 4, 2020
As we navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic, I want to share with you that we have resumed all elective services at our Miami-Dade Group hospitals. Your safety is our top concern, and we have taken the steps necessary to prepare. We have the appropriate PPE (personal protective equipment), safe processes and hospital capacity to care for all patients. We have strict policies and procedures in place to keep patients safe and to ensure the safety of staff, physicians and the community. Rest assured that COVID-19 patients are cared for in separate areas of the hospitals. All patients and staff are screened and provided with appropriate protective gear and PPE. It is important not to delay lifesaving urgent or emergent care that could be vital to your health.
Emergencies happen – and are unplanned. As a reminder, we remain open 24/7 with board-certified physicians to care for any emergent medical need, at any time. Our hospitals are open and safe to care for you and your loved ones. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, our exceptional team of dedicated caregivers regularly treated infectious diseases, and we remain prepared and ready to continue to provide safe care.
We are proud to serve as your healthcare ambassadors to guide you through this difficult time. We are a Community Built on Care.
