INTEGRIS Serving COVID and Non-COVID Needs

While much of our efforts are understandably focused on COVID-19, we stand ready for any non-COVID needs the community may have as well. We do not want people to neglect their health during this unprecedented time.

We are still treating patients with heart disease, stroke, cancer and other chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension - none of which can be ignored.

That being said, we have instituted several innovative ways to care for patients while also keeping them safe from the coronavirus.

To help you receive care while sheltering in place, we have ramped up our Telehealth and Virtual Visit capabilities for primary care physicians and specialists.

If you need to see a physician in-person or need to physically come to one of our facilities for a critical test, treatment or procedure - we have made adaptations for that as well.

  • For example; a woman who finds a lump in her breast will still be able to get a mammogram. We have limited the number of exams each day to allow appropriate distancing between patients.
  • Those visiting our INTEGRIS Medical Group clinics can skip the waiting room and wait in their cars instead. Once inside, they will be given a mask and taken directly to an exam room.
  • We also continue to provide urgent and emergent care in our hospitals and clinics. Visit here to locate an INTEGRIS Emergency Room near you.
  • In all the above areas, we have intensified our cleaning processes and continue to monitor everyone who enters our buildings for fever and other symptoms.

In line with Governor Stitt’s recent announcement removing his executive order on

elective surgical procedures we are currently evaluating several different

Return to Operation strategies. We will most likely implement a phased approach to increasing services across our hospitals and clinics.

In our first phase, we are resuming outpatient elective imaging procedures on Monday, April 20.

These would consist of low-risk diagnostics such as MRI, CT, ultrasound, echocardiography, mammography, fluoroscopy, and other imaging modalities that do not require use of personal protective equipment beyond the implemented system-wide solution (face-shields and patient masks). We feel our new registration processes, patient screening algorithms, environmental safety practices, and widespread use of face shields and patient masking, make it safe for us to once again offer these services.

While we are excited the executive order is being lifted we still need to be judicious with our limited inventory of PPE. We must resume operations intelligently and in a manner that protects patients, practitioners and caregivers.
