To our valued patients,
In an effort to slow the spread of Covid-19/Coronavirus, Kettering Medical Center has limited the number of support persons to be allowed on the Labor & Delivery and Mother/Baby units of the hospital.
EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY only two support persons will be allowed per laboring patient for the entirety of their hospital stay. Kettering Medical Center will be screening ALL non-patient persons entering the hospital for symptoms associated with Covid-19/Coronavirus, including support persons for laboring patients. Any person with any grade fever, cough or respiratory symptoms WILL NOT be permitted to enter the facility. Their policy of no non-patient persons under the age of 14 in the facility remains in effect during this time as well.
IF YOU HAVE ANY SYMPTOMS RELATED TO COVID-19/CORONAVIRUS PLEASE DO NOT COME INTO THE OFFICE. PLEASE CALL THE OFFICE AT 937.771.5100 FOR FURTHER DIRECTION REGARDING YOUR CONDITION.
We realize this is disappointing and upsetting news. We appreciate your understanding and patience while we work to keep patients and staff healthy during this global health crisis.
Please feel free to reach out to the office if you have any questions or concerns.
Huey & Weprin, OB/Gyn
