COVID-19 Screenings and Your Care

You may have heard that Knox Community Hospital is currently screening all patients entering any campus location in order to detect and prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. This account is true and has been planned to maintain continued care for our community.

You and your family are important to us and we’ve designed a tiered assessment process to provide protection and direction for patients once inside the building. All patients will be screened, will receive a form to identify possible risk of COVID-19 exposure and be instructed to proceed accordingly to a designated location.

Emergency care is operating normally; the screening process does not prevent, slow or delay the ability of our staff to treat you, your families and friends in any way.
