COVID-19 Updates (3/16/20)

An important update from Southwest Diagnostic Center for Molecular Imaging regarding your upcoming appointment

At Southwest Diagnostic Center for Molecular imaging, the safety and well-being of our patients, our staff, and our community is our number one priority. We would like to share up-to-date information and resources related to the Coronavirus outbreak and its relevance to your upcoming visit.   

This is a disconcerting and challenging time for all of us, but as a healthcare provider, we must stay open to support our physicians and care for our patients. We are taking proper universal precautions by disinfecting our lobbies on a regular basis and disinfecting our procedure rooms between every patient. Of course, hand washing and the use of an approved alcohol-based hand scrub is widely in practice. Lastly, all patients and their guests are prescreened prior to admitting to allow us to take the necessary precautions. 

Recent Change(s)

  • Valet – All campus valet service will be suspended until further notice.
  • Wheelchair Transport – Professional office building wheelchair transport is suspended until further notice. 

Feeling Sick?

  • Please contact our office, (214)345-6905, ahead of your appointment to determine if special precautions should be taken during your visit.

Steps for prevention:

  • Stay home when you are sick, except to seek medical care.
  • Avoid large gatherings and crowded places. Avoid hospitals and nursing homes, unless you are there to receive medical care.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, throw it away when finished, then thoroughly wash hands.
  • Use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Clean frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Pay attention for potential COVID-19 symptoms, including cough, fever, and shortness of breath. If you think you are developing symptoms, call your doctor.
