Patient-Centered Care

VISITATION:

To ensure a safe environment for the Gila Regional Medical Center patients and visitors amid the outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) across the U.S., we have updated the patient and visitor policies for all of our locations.

While we understand the important role that family members and visitors play in a patient’s healing process, the new policies aim to balance the needs of patients while maintaining a safe environment for all. Our focus remains on doing what we do best — healing those who are ill and keeping our patients, visitors, and staff safe. Rest assured that we are prepared, our protocols are updated daily, and we have clinical and operational plans in place for the hospitals and clinics.
