COVID-19 Update

March 24, 2020

Logan Regional Medical Center continues to adapt to meet the clinical needs of our communities during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and through this, we remain committed to providing high quality care and protecting the health and safety of our patients, employees, physicians and community at large. We have been working closely with the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources as well as the West Virginia Hospital Association and following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). An important element to our preparedness is minimizing the risk of exposure in any way we can, as we navigate this rapidly evolving situation and prepare for what the next few weeks may hold.

Logan Regional Medical Center will continue to provide services that are deemed clinically appropriate by your physician.

To adhere to the “stay at home” policy from Governor Jim Justice, our hospital has decided to temporarily close the following services as of Wednesday, March 24, 2020:    

  • Sleep Lab
  • Cardiac Rehab
  • Pulmonary Rehab
  • Mammography
  • Bone Density Testing
  • Lung Cancer Screenings
  • Satellite Lab- Medical Office Building (next to hospital) and Life Services Center at Holden 

The trust our community places in us is so important. We want to assure our community that it is safe to come to our hospital should you or a family member need care. Our providers and clinical teams are well-trained and prepared to safely respond to viruses and infectious diseases, including COVID-19.

We appreciate your understanding and support as we continue to do everything we can to prepare for the potential impact of COVID-19 on our community. For more information about hospital preparedness, please visit our website at LoganRegionalMedicalCenter.com or our Facebook page. For more information about COVID-19, please contact West Virginia Department of Human Resources or visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website at www.cdc.gov.

As a reminder, if you are concerned you are experiencing respiratory illness symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath) and plan to visit our hospital, your primary care provider or an urgent clinic, please call ahead before you go and let them know that you are experiencing symptoms that may possibly be related to COVID-19. This will allow providers to properly prepare for your visit and take the necessary precautions to keep others from being infected or exposed. If you are having a medical emergency, you should call 911 or go directly to the Emergency Room. If possible, notify the dispatch agent that your emergency involves symptoms possibly related to COVID-19.
