Capital City Surgery Center COVID-19 Update

Capital City Surgery Center remains committed to your safety and your care!

We understand the concern and uncertainty you may be experiencing surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19). We are doing everything we can to be consistent with the CDC and public health recommendations and continue to provide you with the highest quality service you have come to expect from us.

Effective May 4, 2020, Capital City Surgery Center may resume all elective surgery.

We will continue with our efforts to limiting exposure to our patients, visitors, and staff. Every patient and visitor (designated driver) will be contacted the day prior to surgery and asked specific screening questions. If you answer yes to any of the screening questions, your surgery may be postponed. If your driver answers yes to any of the screening questions, you will be asked to consider another driver to accompany you to the Center.

All patients must have a COVID-19 test within 72 hours of their scheduled surgery date. We will ask for the documented results of your test on the morning of surgery. At this time, the COVID-19 test is required, even if you have received the full vaccination series for COVID-19.

Capital City Surgery Center has implemented, and continues to practice, the following measures to keep our patients, visitors, and employees safe:

  • Continued diligence for screening: This includes, not only patients and visitors, but our housekeeping staff, vendors, suppliers, physicians, and employees.
  • Continued diligence for disinfecting surfaces in the waiting and registration areas, clinical practice areas, break rooms, rest rooms and the operating room.
  • Practicing social distancing: In waiting area and within the Center itself.
  • Limiting visitors to only one per patient (except for children).
  • Limiting the number of children in the Center. If you can leave your children with another care giver, please do so.
  • Daily temperature recording of all patients, visitors, housekeeping staff, vendors, and suppliers.

All personnel entering Capital City Surgery Center must wear a face mask and continuing wearing the face mask, at all times, while inside the Surgery Center. If you do not have a mask, it will be our pleasure to provide you with one.

We are asking visitors who are sick to not enter the facility. This includes visitors with:

  • Cough, runny nose, or other symptoms due to allergies
  • Cold or flu-like symptoms
  • Fever
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Any other “cold” symptom

In order to ensure our patient and our team are safe, if you feel a visitor appears sick, please ask one of our staff members to address your concern. Any family/visitor who appears sick, but must be on-site for patient needs (i.e., driver for a patient), must wait outside the Center to limit exposure to others.

Capital City Surgery Center remains committed to doing the right thing! We’ll stay on top of the latest information and relay any service-related updates to you.

It is important for all of us to stay on top of the latest information coming from state and federal experts and we encourage you to monitor the CDC for the latest Coronavirus updates.

Most importantly, we want you and your families to be safe and stay healthy.
