Facility Closures and Changes

To best combat coronavirus, BayCare has shuttered some facilities to reposition its team members and resources. Several BayCare sites have been temporarily closed and some BayCare Urgent Care sites are just dealing with COVID-19. 

See a list of facility closures and changes below. 

  • Elective Surgeries

    BayCare plans to resume elective surgeries starting Monday, May 4. 

    BayCare Surgery Centers have implemented enhanced procedures and processes amid the pandemic to keep patients, team members and physicians safe. Among the safety measures patients can expect:

    • Continued screenings of all who enter BayCare hospitals or ambulatory surgical centers.
    • Constant and routinized cleaning of all spaces – including treatment rooms and waiting areas -- to minimize infection risk.
    • Enhanced use of personal protection equipment.
    • Continued social distance practicing, including removing furniture in waiting areas and/or offering check-in procedures via smart phones so patients wait in cars until room is ready for them.
    • All surgical patients will be tested for COVID-19 prior to procedure.Any patient testing positive for COVID-19 will have to wait a minimum of 14 days to be re-tested and then must have two negative tests performed 24 hours apart to be considered for surgery.

    BayCare will continue its no visitation policy for the time being to reduce exposure risk for patients, team members and physicians. There are two primary exceptions: One parent is allowed for each patient under 18 and ambulatory surgical center patients may bring one visitor to be available for transportation home.
