Our front-line staff members are keeping abreast of the recommended guidelines and are diligently putting processes in place to protect everyone to the best of our ability.

Northwest Medical Center would like to encourage you to check on your neighbors, particularly those who are elderly or have health conditions that prevent them from handling day-to-day chores such as grocery shopping, prescription refills or other tasks. Groceries or medicines can be left at the door without making close contact. A friendly phone call will go a long way in letting your neighbors know that someone is there to help. And please remember, the best way to protect yourself and minimize the chance of passing the COVID-19 virus to someone else is to stay at home!
