Earlier this week, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds extended the ban on non-essential and elective surgeries and procedures through April 30. In following that directive, Physicians’ Clinic of Iowa has rescheduled many non-emergent appointments and procedures to later dates in order to keep our patients and our staff safe from the spread of COVID-19.
PCI’s Cedar Rapids campus remains open, 8 am – 4 pm, Monday – Friday. Patients with urgent needs, such as severe injuries, chemotherapy infusions, and other surgical and non-surgical procedures that cannot be delayed, are being seen as regularly scheduled. All services, including diagnostic lab and imaging, are fully available to these patients, as needed.
PCI has implemented a simple screening process at our entrances, and staff are encouraged to wear masks during direct care. These temporary safety measures will stay in place until at least April 30, when we will reassess the COVID-19 situation.
For those who choose not to venture out, several PCI clinics are offering telemedicine appointments, if the technology can be applied to patients’ unique situations. Through telemedicine, patients connect with their providers by computer or mobile devices via PCI’s patient portal. Log into your PCI portal account by going to pcofiowa.com and clicking “Patient Portal Login.”
“Our staff has stepped up in a time of uncertainty and have been beyond generous with their time and patience,” said David Hart, MD, FAAOS, President and Chief Medical Officer at PCI. “Everyone is definitely doing their part, doing everything they have been asked to do and then some. It’s amazing to see our healthcare community pull together, under extreme circumstances, with one goal in mind.”
