In-Person Care

If you need to come into the hospital or one of our offices, we are taking additional safety measures to care for everyone who comes through our door, including:

  • Frequent and extensive cleaning, especially in high touch areas.
  • Screening employees, patients and visitors.
  • Requiring everyone to use hand sanitizer and wear masks, which are provided onsite.
  • Having team members wear appropriate personal protective equipment.
  • Setting up waiting rooms differently and restructuring appointments scheduling to minimize wait times and limit contact between patients.
  • Placing appropriate signage throughout spaces to maintain social distancing.
  • Treating patients with COVID-19 in isolated areas in the hospitals.

Walk-in Clinics (no appointment necessary)

If you need urgent care, come into a Lakeland walk-in clinic. In addition to the in-person measures above, we have changed our procedures to manage patient flow and minimize time spent in higher traffic areas like check-in and check-out.

Spectrum Health Lakeland team members have been trained on safe practices to help prevent the spread of infection and are prepared to care for you throughout this crisis. We are ready for your care.
