Your Health Can’t Wait. #DoNotDelayCare

CalvertHealth is Safe, Ready, Waiting

“With the fall flu season upon us, this is a great time to remind everyone in our community to make an appointment for a screening or check-up they may have missed or put off due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said CalvertHealth President and CEO Dean Teague.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, CalvertHealth has updated its visitor policy for the medical center. Patients to the Emergency Department are now allowed one (1) support person to accompany them for the duration of the Emergency Department stay. For the most up-todate information on our visitor policy, please visit CalvertHealthMedicine.org/Covid-19.

“Patients are waiting too long to seek the care they need due to concerns about exposing themselves to COVID-19,” said Teague. “I cannot emphasize enough the time and attention we pay to safety. It is our top priority at all times.” He went on to add, “I want residents to feel comfortable seeking the medical treatment they need. At the same time, I want to remind people that timeliness is important. Small issues can quickly become more serious if they are not addressed effectively.” CalvertHealth has put in place numerous precautions (see list at right) throughout the health system including the medical center, our physician practices, outpatient clinics, services and surgery center. Now that elective procedures and other outpatient services have resumed, our message to the community is: “We’re here, we’re ready and we’re able to take care of you just like we’ve always been.”

CalvertHealth has taken every possible precaution to protect you and our healthcare workers. Here are just a few of the things we’re doing to protect your health and deliver high-quality care:

  • Following all Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance and increasing our already stringent cleanliness practices, including using state-of-the-art UV technology
  • Providing personal protective equipment (PPE) to our healthcare workers and face coverings to any patients that do not have their own
  • Practicing social distancing by scheduling appointments to limit the number of patients and employees in an area and using telemedicine and other advances to provide access to care from the convenience of your home or office


If you need to be tested for COVID-19, contact your healthcare provider for more information. Testing is available with an order at the VEIP station in Prince Frederick. ChoiceOne Urgent Care in Prince Frederick is offering drive-thru rapid testing, an appointment is required. For more information, or if you do not have a healthcare provider, contact our community hotline at 410.535.8469 or visit our website at CalvertHealthMedicine.org/Covid-19.
