Welcome Back

Welcome Back

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed so much about our daily lives, from work and school schedules to social calendars and, yes, the way we approach healthcare. And at every step of the way, Bellin Health has had your safety and well-being in mind.

Early on in the pandemic, we chose to postpone all non-urgent appointments to prevent the spread of the disease and conserve critical resources. Now, in light of our current circumstances and the progress that has been made, physician leadership at Bellin Health have determined that it’s not just safe but important to reconnect with all of our patients for your healthcare needs.

Welcome back to our clinic and hospital locations.

Chronic conditions, emergency care, pain management, and the need for potentially life-saving screenings haven’t gone away just because there’s a pandemic. Millions of people have put off healthcare during the COVID-19 crisis, and that can have serious, lasting effects on your health — delayed treatments can result in complications and even death, delayed screenings can mean missing a disease when it’s still treatable, and people may end up living with pain that affects their daily lives. Bellin Health continues to do everything we can to provide all your healthcare needs.

Safety First

Bellin Health wouldn’t start seeing non-urgent patients again if we weren’t completely confident that we could do so safely. We’ve taken additional steps to keep you and our staff safe.

  • We’ve established new processes and dedicated sites to clinics to treat and keep COVID-19 patients separated from patients coming for other healthcare needs. This includes dedicated respiratory clinics, a revamped Emergenc Department triage area, and a dedicated COVID-19 unit within Bellin Hospital.
  • We have entrance screenings in place at all locations.
  • We’ve secured and use more personal protective equipment (PPE), including masks for all employees and patients that do not have their own.
  • We’ve increased our use of e-visits and video and phone visits to care for you in your home.
  • We’ve worked with our patients and communities to promote physical distancing, increased handwashing, masking and stay-at-home messaging.
  • We have greater access to COVID-19 testing, which is key to treating and slowing the spread of this disease.
  • We have a comprehensive plan to handle any surge or other situations that might occur.
