MOSH and Ascension are following guidelines from the CDC, Surgeon General, and American College of Surgeons, which have recommended limiting elective services.
Effective March 19, 2020, a statewide postponement of all non-emergency surgeries and procedures was implemented. Because every patient encounter is unique, individual care decisions must always represent the unique interactions between you and your doctor. Your MOSH doctor will direct your case through an established protocol to determine postponement. Such measures are necessary to protect patients and MOSH staff against potential COVID-19 exposure, and ensure the availability of resources to meet emergent health needs during this pandemic.
MOSH and Ascension are working to keep our community healthy during this time and prevent the spread of infection while also offering options for easier access to care. Please note:
- If you have a fever, cough or other respiratory symptoms, please call (833) 978-0649 before visiting one of our Ascension facilities, so you can be screened by a nursing professional.
- For ongoing COVID-19 updates, visit the Centers for Disease Control website.
- Ascension Online Care is also offering video urgent care visits at a discounted rate of $20, so you can talk to a doctor from home. No insurance required. Use the code HOME at Ascension Online Care
- Ascension is implementing temporary visitor restrictions, including at the MOSH campus, to minimize the spread of viral respiratory infections including COVID-19. Please contact your site of care for instructions.
Every member of the MOSH team signed a pledge to put patients first long before this current pandemic. We understand this is a challenging time. We are here for you. If you have questions about a scheduled appointment or procedure with MOSH, please contact us.
