Thermal Scanning

We are now using thermal scanning to check all approved visitors for fever. To protect the health and safety of our patients and our workforce, you must also protect your own health to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

  • WMCHealth protocols during this time require that all visitors are fever-free for at least 72 hours before entering the hospital.

While a fever is a symptom of COVID-19 – it can also be a symptom of many other illnesses. If you are concerned about your fever, please reach out directly to your primary care physician. We will continue to scan any approved visitors for fever. Once you are fever free for 72 hours and without symptoms of illness, you can return for screening, and then visitation after screening.

While visitor restrictions are in place there are other methods to facilitate communication:

  • Phone
  • Facetime
  • We are happy to work with your loved one on this.

Please read our Pandemic Emergency Plan (PEP).  Our PEP is available upon request.

Testimonial 1:  Beverly Roa

Beverly Roa, 75 

"I was at Bon Secours Community Hospital in the ICU because I could not walk without help and I could not talk.  I was transferred to St. Josephs Place so I could receive additional help and treatment.  They called for speech therapy while I was there and due to this helpful therapy and a new medication that was prescribed to me my voice/ability to talk came back.  This was a miracle for me.  The nursing staff at St. Josephs Place was instrumental in my recovery.  They would not let me just stay in my room, they helped me try new things and challenged me to improve.  Because of the patience and insistence of my physical therapist I was walking with the help of a walker (but on my own -- and without a wheel chair) within a week."  

"Every single member of the nursing staff, nursing aides, speech, physical and occupational therapists at St. Josephs Place are phenomenal."
