SRHS requests visitors voluntarily stay away from hospital
Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System (SRHS) is requesting that, for the health of its patients and community, visitors voluntarily stay away from the hospital.

The healthcare system requests that as a precaution against the spread of influenza.

“Our goal is to have friends and family make appropriate and informed decisions,” said Dr. Christopher Lombardozzi, chief medical officer of quality for SRHS. “Please use your best judgment while planning a visit.”

SRHS recommends:

• Anyone with flu-like symptoms is asked not to visit within the hospital. These symptoms include fever, nausea, breathing difficulty, general achiness.

• People in the following categories should visit only if absolutely necessary:

     * Pregnant women

     • Those with weakened immune systems

     • Those with lung conditions or breathing difficulties

     • Children under the age of 18 and older adults

Consider visiting your primary care doctor or an immediate care center if you are sick and need medical attention. The Emergency Center is not the appropriate place to be seen for flu symptoms unless you fall under the following categories:

• People younger than 2 years old and older than 65 years old

• Pregnant women (and women up to two weeks postpartum)

• Nursing home and long-term care facility residents

• Multiple chronic conditions, such as heart disease and blood disorders.

If you are having flu symptoms, here is how to find care:

• Connect with a board-certified physician on your computer, tablet or phone through Virtual Care.

• Visit A SRHS Immediate Care Center (ICC):
