Methodist Health will reduce outpatient office visits beginning March 18 at the following locations:
 Methodist Family Medicine
 Methodist Pediatrics
 Methodist Women’s
 Methodist Surgical Services
 Methodist Hematology/Oncology
 Methodist Multi-Specialty Clinic
 Methodist Advanced Wound Healing Center
Providers will evaluate each patient’s benefit versus risk of exposure before postponing office visits, following guidelines from the CDC and other medical organizations. Well visits will be postponed, and all in-office visits and procedures [that can be postponed without resulting in patient harm] will be rescheduled. Some patient follow-up visits may be conducted via telephone.
Patients with appointments scheduled between March 18 and April 10 will be contacted by the provider’s office to discuss rescheduling; this time period may be extended.
Methodist administration and physician leadership believe this action will protect patients and health care workers, reduce the demand on critical supplies and staffing, and help control the spread of COVID-19 in the community.
