Dr. Baroody giving a high five to a pediatric patient

As one of the nation’s safest medical centers, we remain committed to providing outstanding care during these extraordinary times. To continue serving all of our patients, we go above and beyond state and national standards to protect your health and safety while you receive medical care.

If your child need in-person care, we have implemented a number of new policies to keep you and your family safe and healthy, including:

  • Health and wellness screenings at entrances
  • Requiring everyone to wear a mask
  • Remote check-ins and check-outs
  • Minimizing the number of patients in waiting areas to respect social distancing standards

We have taken these precautionary steps because of our core commitment to protecting the health and safety of all patients while meeting their essential need for medical care.
