CHRISTUS Southeast Texas Health System officials say they are prepared and stand ready to care for the community throughout the COVID-19 crisis.
At this time there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 at any CHRISTUS Southeast Texas Health System facility. To ensure local facilities continue to be safe places to receive care, CHRISTUS is implementing temporary visitation restrictions:
- One visitor per patient (with the exception of Labor and Delivery and Post-Partum where the addition of one support person is allowed.)
- New visiting hours: 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.
- Visitors can expect within the next 48-72 hours to be guided to one entrance for CHRISTUS St. Mary Outpatient Center Mid County – Main entrance on Ninth Avenue.
All visitors can expect to be screened for coronavirus (COVID-19) at that point of entry.
“At CHRISTUS Southeast Texas Health System, we remain vigilant in responding to this evolving situation, meeting throughout the day to ensure we are prepared to respond to present and potential future needs of our community,” a CHRISTUS statement reads.
“We continue to follow Centers for Disease Control guidelines for healthcare facilities located in areas, like ours, that are not experiencing community spread. We do have emergency preparedness plans in place and are fully prepared to execute as appropriate for our community circumstances.”
