Last Updated: May 7, 2020

Your health and the health of all Midwest Center for Women’s HealthCare patients and staff is of utmost importance to us.

Effective immediately, Midwest Center for Women’s HealthCare now requires that all patients wear a mask while in our Care Centers in accordance with CDC recommendations.

Our physicians are closely monitoring clinical guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Illinois Department of Public Health, and the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) and we are offering the following guidelines to our patients.

Appointment Rescheduling

Whenever possible, please use our Patient Portal to reschedule your appointment or if you have health questions for your provider. You may also call our offices to speak with a nurse.

Guidelines for Rescheduling Your Appointment May 1, 2020 – May 31, 2020

Please reschedule your appointment if any of the following apply to you now or within the last 14 days:

  • You are experiencing a fever, cough, or shortness of breath.

  • You are experiencing any additional symptoms such as loss of smell or taste, runny nose, sore throat, fatigue, loss of appetite, diarrhea, nausea, or muscle aches and pains.
  • You have had close contact with anyone under investigation for or known to have tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 14 days.

  • If you are pregnant and meet the criteria outlined above, please call our office and ask to speak to a nurse to make specific arrangements for your care. Unless you meet these criteria, please come to your prenatal appointments unless directed not to by your physician.

Social Distancing and Visitor Restrictions

  • Effective immediately, Midwest Center for Women’s HealthCare now requires all patients wear a mask while in our Care Centers in accordance with CDC recommendations.

  • We are making every extra effort to clean and sanitize our waiting rooms, patient checkin areas, and examination rooms after every patient for patients who need to come into the office during this time. To minimize patients’ time in our offices, we are using “virtual waiting rooms” whenever possible. Please wait in your car and call us when you arrive at our office and our staff can contact you as soon as they are ready for you to enter the exam room.

  • To minimize your time in our waiting rooms, we strongly encourage you to use our online check in options. You should receive a link via email and/or text to check in online prior to your appointment.

  • To protect all our staff and patients, we will need you to come alone to your visit. Some of our office buildings have extra security at the entrances and will only allow the patient to enter the building.

  • Please understand that our providers and staff will also be following social distancing guidelines whenever possible during your visit. We can all work together to prevent spread of germs by washing hands, utilizing hand sanitizer, and avoiding close proximity, handshakes, and hugs in the offices.

We value your trust, your health, and your safety, as well as the health and safety of our staff. Midwest Center for Women’s HealthCare is your partner in health today and always.
