Preparing For Your Appointment

With extra precautions in place to ensure patient and visitor safety, stay up to date with our latest protocols. At our hospitals, all patients and visitors are required to wear masks. We ask about symptoms and check their temperatures at the door.

Surgeries and Procedures

Our operating rooms and procedural areas meet the most stringent guidelines for cleanliness and safety. If you have a scheduled procedure, our teams will walk you through new, easy processes for pre-testing, arrival and discharge. These include using mobile device check-in and reduced on-site paperwork.

If you are admitted to the hospital or have an upcoming surgery or a procedure requiring general anesthesia, you will receive a COVID-19 test. We have established COVID-19 testing for asymptomatic and symptomatic patients at several locations throughout Connecticut and Westerly, RI.

Current Restrictions

While community spread of COVID-19 is still occurring, we will continue to restrict who can visit our hospitals and who can accompany patients to appointments. We don’t like limiting visitors, but it helps reduce the risk of exposure to patients and staff.
