CORONAVIRUS ADVISORY

Keeping you, our patients, and our employees healthy and safe during the Coronavirus event is important. In order to promote a safe environment and prevent viral spread, we will only allow ONE visitor, including children, per patient until further notice.   PLEASE RESCHEDULE YOUR APPOINTMENT IF YOU OR YOUR GUEST HAVE ANY SYMPTOMS OF FEVER, COLD, OR FLU.  We appreciate your patience and understanding.

With the recent outbreak of Coronavirus, we ask that you please DO NOT ENTER any of our OCR Campuses if you have:

  • You have Traveled from any of the CDC travel advisory locations in the past 14 days
  • Been on a CRUISE SHIP in the past 14 days
  • A FEVER with respiratory symptoms (cough or shortness of breath)
  • You have been DIRECTLY EXPOSED to a person who has tested positive for Coronavirus
  • Are UNDER QUARANTINE

If you meet one of the above criteria AND have developed a fever with respiratory symptoms we kindly ask that you do not enter any of our OCR Campuses for the health and safety of others.

We are monitoring the situation closely and feel we can continue providing orthopaedic care and proceed with elective procedures that we feel are safe and appropriate.  We recognize that elective procedures may be in the best interest of our patients so they do not deteriorate or worsen and become urgent or emergent procedures in the future.  Additionally, we appreciate that the scheduling or canceling of procedures is difficult, both on patients and their families and provider schedules.  We are staying closely connected with our surgery centers so we can coordinate your care accordingly. We will continue to assess the situation daily and will make every attempt to communicate changes as soon as possible. If you develop any flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath) prior to your surgery, please contact your OCR surgeon.

Keeping You & Our Team Safe from Coronavirus (COVID-19)

There is no higher priority than the health and well-being of OCR’s patients and employees. As a precaution to help prevent the spread of the virus, our in house janitorial service has increased cleaning throughout all OCR facilities.

OCR is following CDC, State and County Health Department recommendations and is closely monitoring the spread of the Coronavirus. Please know that we are taking this very seriously, and will continue to keep you informed and up to date on this evolving and fluid situation.
