Your Safety and Well-Being are our No. 1 Priority

For more than one year, we have been following state and federal guidelines—as well as our own rigorous processes and clinical standards—to create the safest possible environment for you and our staff.

To balance care with caution, our enhanced measures include:

  • Pre-procedure screening for all surgery patients
  • Social distancing policies for staff and patients
  • Adequate supply of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), ventilators, medications, and other medical supplies
  • Daily terminal cleaning of the operating rooms to include the use of vaporizing aerial hydrogen peroxide technology for additional disinfection
  • Separate inpatient and outpatient admitting areas, entrances and exits to prevent any potential exposure
  • Inpatient and outpatient staff remain in designated areas assigned for the length of shift

We continue to abide by the “No Visitor” policy. Exceptions can be addressed on individual basis. One of our admitting representatives will review our safety procedures prior to your procedure.

We look forward to providing valuable healthcare services to our community. If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact your surgeon, or call us at (310) 836-7000. (make clickable)
