Scheduling & Visitor RestrictionsWe will be rescheduling some patient appointments and procedures in an effort to protect our patients and staff. Conserving personal protective equipment helps us prioritize the needs of those who may require immediate care. Adjustments to scheduled procedures and appointments will be made as requested by the physician, patient or as required by official local or national public health authorities. We will contact you directly if your appointment or procedure is postponed until a later date. During this time, all Emanuel Medical Center facilities will remain open to care for patients who require in-person visits and time-sensitive care. Thank you for understanding our need to take these measures for the safety of all.

Rigorous screening is also in place for all visitors and patients at designated entrances including the Emergency Department and Registration.
These measures will be in effect until we are advised that it is safe to return to normal visiting practices. We are committed to keeping our patients, our staff and our community safe. We appreciate your support and understanding during this time.
