Hospital Reduces Risk to Patients and Staff
MGH News Release
Molokai General Hospital is committed to the safety and well-being of our patients and employees. Effective immediately, we are taking the following steps to help reduce the potential of exposure at our clinics to protect patients and all clinic staff.
We have made the decision to cancel all elective well-care appointments, including but not limited to, annual physicals, well woman exams, and other preventive exams effective Tuesday, March 17 through May 16. Patients with scheduled appointments have been, or are in the process of being, notified about their appointment cancellation.
MGH providers will be reviewing all other upcoming in-clinic patient appointments to determine what visits may be medically appropriate to be conducted as a Virtual Visit or telephonically. Our providers will be reviewing each patient’s appointment and making a case-by-case determination if the visit needs to be in-person or can be conducted in another manner.
Patient evaluation and treatment for cancer care will continue. Helpful phone numbers:
