BayCare Imaging Makes Service Changes Amid COVID-19


BayCare has made significant changes to operations at its imaging services’ offices to ensure it is able to safely serve patients amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The changes will allow urgent outpatient imaging services to remain accessible in Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco counties.

To accommodate the changes, three of BayCare’s outpatient imaging locations have been temporarily closed, but 10 remain open and offer extended hours. In line with decisions made in other BayCare services, imaging exams that can be safely delayed are being rescheduled, such as screening mammograms. But urgent needs, such as a diagnostic mammogram, are being scheduled.

“Our patients’ urgent health care needs don’t stop because of a pandemic,” said Todd Jones, vice president for ambulatory operations. “We want to be sure we are here for them.”

Among the accommodations at the 10 locations across Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco counties:

  • All patients, team members, and providers are screened and have their temperature checked upon arrival.
  • Waiting rooms have been redesigned to create social distancing of at least 6 feet between patients.
  • Intervals between appointments have been extended to allow more time for cleaning equipment and rooms in accordance with guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
  • All team members and providers are using face masks.

Also, BayCare is adopting a 7-day-on, 7-day-off staffing model for these locations, creating twin teams where possible. Such a model is helpful during the times of infectious disease concerns so there are replacement team members available to provide care should they be needed.
