Wabash General Hospital wants to keep everyone informed about the measures we are taking to protect our patients, visitors and staff during the COVID-19. Things are quickly unfolding, and we continue to take extra precautionary measures to keep our community safe. Our number one priority is to make sure we are prepared for whatever may evolve with this rapidly changing situation. At this time, our main entrance and emergency entrance are open and we are screening all individuals entering our campus as a precaution. All outside community events hosted within the hospital have been suspended until further notice. We are trying our best to adapt to recommendations as they come forth. Just so everyone is aware, the situation is quickly evolving, so additional restrictions may be forth coming. Please continue to use the Coronavirus Symptom Checker on www.wabashgeneral.com and call the WGH COVID-19 Hotline Number at 618-263-6233 prior to coming to the hospital if you are experiencing symptoms. If you have a provider order to be tested for COVID-19, influenza, strep, or RSV, we continue to have drive-thru testing available in order to protect the health and well-being of our patients, visitors and staff. Patients are being tested in their vehicles to reduce exposure. We continue to offer virtual visits to allow access our services in a safe and convenient manner. Please contact 618-263-6234 to see if you are eligible for a virtual visit and to schedule a virtual visit appointment. Patients experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, should not use the virtual visits and continue to use the COVID-19 Hotline. All patients being seen at one of our clinic locations in person, should stay in their vehicle upon arrival and check in by calling the office. The office will contact you when we have an exam room ready. We appreciate the outpouring support we are receiving from the community offering to help any way they can. If anyone would like to help make masks at this time, please contact Vicki Stipp at (618)263-6300. Please continue to take the COVID-19 pandemic very seriously and take all precautions to maintain social distancing recommendations. Wash your hands frequently and isolate yourself if you are not feeling well. We continue to take pride in serving you and your loved ones for all health and wellness needs. We update the Wabash General Hospital Facebook Page daily with announcements and WSJD broadcasts those announcements as well daily. We are prepared to protect your health and well-being and staying current with recommendations. We are still open to help all who seek care.
