Coronavirus: the latest information including visitor restrictions & symptom screening >> (updated July 1)
As we get a better handle on this pandemic, life is slowly beginning to open back up.
At Edward-Elmhurst Health, elective surgeries and procedures are now being performed at our hospitals. Outpatient lab and diagnostic imaging services are now being offered at some locations. And, our physician offices are now open. All with your safety in mind.
Our doctors are offering both in-person and virtual care options to keep you healthy. If you need help deciding, call your doctor’s office. If you need a physician, we can help with that, too.
Sometimes an in-person visit is your best option. If you haven’t seen your doctor in a while, it’s probably time for a check-up to stay on top of any health issues before they become a problem. If you’re dealing with a chronic condition, like hypertension or diabetes, it could get worse if you delay treatment.
Whatever you do, don’t avoid an in-person visit out of fear of potential exposure to the virus. Our doctor offices are taking every precaution to keep you safe and minimize your risk. Read our Safety Commitment.
At our doctor offices, you’ll find these consistent safety measures in place:
Some health issues can be addressed virtually. In addition to in-person office visits, we’re also ready to “see” you while you’re at home.
We’re offering virtual options to both current and new patients for both COVID-19 symptoms and a range of other issues, such as back pain, cough/cold symptoms, allergies, asthma, headache, pink eye and more:
With the MyEEHealth™ mobile app you can find a doctor, schedule an in-person or virtual visit, and keep track of your health from the comfort of anywhere.
If you feel ill, Edward-Elmhurst Health is offering screening options for COVID-19, including a symptom checker to advise you on what to do next and a COVID-19 Nurse Triage Line (331-221-5199) to see if you meet testing requirements. We are also offering Video Visits and E-Visits for COVID-19 symptoms.
