VH has a message for citizens about emergency rooms

Valley Health (VH) in a social media post has a reminder for citizens about emergency rooms.

If you are suffering from mild respiratory symptoms or other non time sensitive concerns you should see your primary care provider (PCP) or use urgent care.

VH cannot perform COVID testing at any location without a physician’s order.

VH reminds citizens in the post that hospital emergency rooms are for emergent needs.

If you suffer from new or chronic problems or for preventive care call your PCP first.

Urgent Care and Walk In Clinics can provide you with treatment of urgent problems.

Emergency rooms are always for life threatening emergency care.
