Recent surge of COVID-19 cases underscores importance of precautions

Communities across Texas have been experiencing increased COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations. Hendrick Health is prepared and has been providing safe, quality healthcare, while reserving 15 percent of its capacity for possible COVID-19 patients.

As a trusted healthcare partner, Hendrick has been vigilant in its preparations and safety precautions to keep patients, visitors and staff safe. National experts speculate the recent surge in positive cases could be attributed to poor adherence of social distancing and other preventive measures. The community is encouraged to wear masks in public, practice social distancing, wash hands with soap and water, disinfect often touched surfaces, as well as stay home when possible. As the pandemic continues, individuals should not let their guard down.

Hendrick is committed to managing capacity at its facilities so that patients can get the care they need, when they need it.

If an individual is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, he/she should text covidhelp to 325-216-4824 or visit the Hendrick website to take a virtual screening.
