In light of Governor Hutchinson’s declaration of a public health emergency for the state of Arkansas, we are taking the opportunity to remind our community of the measures we have taken to protect the health of our patients, their loved ones, and our staff. Due to the significant prevalence of influenza and the concern about global coronavirus, Arkansas Heart Hospital has implemented a screening process and limitation of 1 visitor per patient to our facilities until further notice. Additionally, our third floor waiting room will be closed. All visitors will undergo a daily temperature screen and be asked to answer a short series of questions. Patients will be allowed one visitor over the age of 15 years old who have successfully completed the screening process. If a patient has been identified as a person of interest, no visitors will be allowed. We appreciate the public’s cooperation and support during this period.
