SELF-SCREENING PROTOCOL AT ENTRANCES

While we continue to care for patients with COVID, we must be able to find ways to keep moving forward.  Today, Anderson Healthcare has instituted self-screening protocols for those entering our facilities, whether you are a patient, visitor or staff member.  We have also opened all public entrances into Anderson Hospital which includes our Hospital Entrance 2.
