Sharon Hospital resumes suspended services, appointments required

Posted: 6/2/2020

Beginning Wednesday, June 3, hospital services previously suspended due to COVID-19 will resume on an appointment-only basis at Sharon Hospital. This includes radiology, laboratory, cardiology, rehabilitation and wound care services.

“Our operational reboot takes a strict but very necessary approach to uphold a safe environment for patient care,” said Dr. Mark Hirko, hospital president. “We want everyone to feel confident when visiting us for routine care, tests or elective procedures. Do not put your health on hold due to fears about COVID-19.”

What to know about Sharon Hospital’s reopening during COVID-19:

Two Active Entry Points:

  • Main entrance: Open Monday through Friday from 5:45 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
  • Emergency department: Open seven days a week from 5:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. After 11 p.m., patients can access the emergency department at the adjacent ambulance bay entrance

Arrival Screenings

  • A scheduled appointment (for all services) is required to enter the hospital; no walk-ins.
  • Individuals who arrive without a scheduled appointment will receive a Scheduling Card with phone numbers to coordinate a future visit. The card also includes the number to preregister for your appointment prior to arriving at the hospital.
  • Everyone who enters the building will have their temperature checked and be asked several screening questions related to COVID-19.
  • Anyone transporting a patient to the hospital must remain in their vehicle at all times.

General Safety

  • Anyone entering the hospital is required to wear a face covering.
  • The hospital still has a no-visitation policy.

“We continue to monitor the progression and impact of COVID-19 in our region and are prepared to adjust patient care and facility policies as necessary,” Hirko said.

For questions, please call the hospital’s main line at (860) 364-4000 (TTY: 800-842-9710).
