Supporting Our Communities
Across Tenet and USPI, we have multiple sites of care in our health system, and we work in partnership with over 50 other health systems in the US. In our ambulatory portfolio, we are providing care, with the proper protocols, for chronically ill patients that cannot be deferred without creating a new public health emergency. This includes patients who need urgent care for heart and vascular disease, bone and joint disabilities, cancer treatment and prevention and other conditions.
We continue to closely monitor and follow CDC guidelines and comply with state and local orders to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. We will continue to work with doctors and clinicians to do what is best for patient care and to coordinate with and support health systems throughout the country. The safety of our patients and caregivers is paramount and we have built all of our protocols around that principle.
Every day, but especially during this challenging time, our front-line team members and facility staff manage adversity and provide quality, compassionate care. They lead by example and do what they have been called upon and trained to do with honor and professionalism. We are deeply grateful for their selfless courage and dedication to saving lives.
We also want to recognize the heroic efforts of all healthcare professionals around the world who are responding to COVID-19.
