Coshocton Regional Medical Center remains committed to the continuing good
health of our community and is currently focused on both the containment
and mitigation of COVID-19. Appropriate resources of staff, clinical partners,
space and supplies have been allocated to meet the needs of our patients,
and adjustments will be made as necessary as we continue to monitor recommended
CDC protocols. Working closely with local health officials, contingency
plans have been put in place to ensure the safety and well-being of staff,
patients, physicians, volunteers and community members who visit our hospital
or clinics. To date, we have no cases of COVID-19 in our hospital.
“We are taking all the necessary precautions to protect patient and
employee health” says Stephanie Conn, CEO. “We are working
continuously with local health officials and continue to follow the guidance
from the Ohio Department of Health and the CDC. All services remain open
and available to care for our community.”
You may be concerned about news of the COVID-19 and its implications for
your health and those of your loved ones. Your safety and well-being are
our top priority. Please be assured that you are under no additional exposure
risk by visiting our hospital and clinics. Patients should feel confident
in making and keeping their appointments. This is a rapidly evolving situation
and we suggest you check out the latest updates on the Ohio Department
of Health’s website as well as the CDC website.
If you feel you have symptoms of COVID-19, please call ahead to your Primary
Care Provider for guidance. Tell your healthcare professional about your
recent travel and contact. Patients that seek care and exhibit symptoms
of the COVID-19 virus after being evaluated by health care professionals
at the guidance of local health officials and the Ohio Department of Health,
will be tested to confirm their symptoms. If you have additional questions,
contact the Coshocton County Health Department or call the Ohio Department
of Health COVID-19 hotline at 1-833-4ASKODH.
We continue to have visitor restrictions from this year’s regular
Flu season. We ask that only immediate family over the age of 18 years
of age that are flu-free come to visit patients.
