Mount Carmel recognizes that there is conflicting information coming from many sources, and it can be difficult to know what information, or advice, to trust. We will continue to provide the most up-to-date, scientifically-proven information about COVID-19.

To reduce the risk of spread of COVID-19, we've set up COVID-Free zones in our facilities for all patients who are receiving non-COVID-related care. COVID-Free Zones are areas where we provide care only for people not known to have COVID-19 or COVID symptoms.

Wearing masks, physical distancing, washing your hands and getting vaccinated are the most effective things you can do to slow the spread of COVID-19. Gaiter style, vented and cloth masks are prohibited.

For the safety of our patients, colleagues and providers, limited visitors are allowed on our hospital campuses, in Mount Carmel Medical Group offices and Mount Carmel outpatient centers. Exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis. To learn more, click here.

If you're having a surgery or procedure, you may need to be tested for COVID-19. Your vaccination status will be taken into account when making this decision. Please contact your provider for questions prior to your procedure.

Your safety is our utmost concern. Safety is one of our core values and a top priority. Learn more about our commitment to your safety.

We've set up COVID-19 Free Zones to keep COVID-19+ patients separate from others. We have the needed personal protective equipment (PPE), screening and testing in place for all patient care facilities. Appropriate testing, workforce, and supplies are monitored daily, and we continue to clean and disinfect high touch surfaces to prevent transmission of the virus following the CDC's standards for COVID-19 safety.

You may be afraid anytime you need to visit a hospital or receive medical care, and we understand this is a more concerning time than usual. We are here for you and are committed to keeping you safe while you get the medical care you need.

Mount Carmel currently offers all levels of care, including everything from inpatient and emergency care to in-person and virtual care appointments.

COVID-19 is a new, or novel, coronavirus. We are learning new information about this virus every day, including what is effective in stopping the spread and potential treatments. We prefer that all treatments and therapies undergo randomized, double-blind clinical trials with enough numbers of patients to justify their safe and effective use in clinical protocols.

Today, the treatments we offer, Remdesivir and Dexamethasone, have been tested and proven as being truly safe and effective.

We will continue to participate in research protocols, share best demonstrated practices, and evolve our clinical care protocols and processes to provide the best care for our patients, our communities, and our colleagues.

We prefer that all treatments undergo randomized, double-blind clinical trials with enough numbers to justify their safe and effective use in clinical protocols. Hydroxychloroquine has not been proven to be effective, as demonstrated by several randomized clinical trials. Patients may even fare worse on this therapy.

We will continue to use the best available clinical evidence to care for our COVID-19 patients.
