About Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)
Shelby Baptist Medical Center is working closely with the Alabama Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to respond to any potential coronavirus cases in our area. We routinely treat infectious diseases at Shelby Baptist Medical Center. We have strong infection control policies, procedures, and systems in place to screen and treat patients. We are committed to keeping our patients, our staff, and our community safe. For more information about the coronavirus, go to the CDC website.
For the safety of our patients and staff, effective until further notice, we will be eliminating all visiting hours in compliance with a statewide health order issued by Alabama Governor Kay Ivey and the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) to aid in Alabama’s efforts to contain the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). We will be working with families on an individual basis for compassionate care situations including end-of-life and maternity. We appreciate your understanding.
We are happy to assist our patients with virtual visits via their personal devices.
An exception to any limited visitation policy at the hospital is patients with disabilities who require support from family members or staff in order for them to effectively communicate with medical personnel or otherwise receive equal access to medical treatment.Read more about how our parent company, Tenet Healthcare, is supporting our community through COVID-19.
