To All of Arizona Community Surgeon Valued Patients,

The providers and staff of Arizona Community Surgeons providing care to you from one of our nine campuses want to inform you of the steps being taken to assist in helping you stay healthy in these complicated and challenging times. 

The following measures have been implemented at our facilities to ensure that a safe environment for you and our employees.   Additional cleaning procedures have been implemented in all areas of our facilities.  We are utilizing OSHA guidelines for our staff and monitoring the CDC for guidance in addressing protection for our patients and staff.

We are implementing a screening of patients/family members at all of our campuses to identify any potential exposure to patents and healthcare staff.  These measures may include obtaining a temperature, assessing patients/family members and employees for signs of cough and general overall health.   Our staff is available to re-schedule your appointment if you are symptomatic or want to take extra precaution by remaining at home.  We are in the process of installing the ability to do telemedicine.  If you are interested in seeing your provider via this method, please contact our office to be contacted when our system is available.

Please know that we are in an evolving situation and want to assure you that we will continue to monitor the guidance given by the relevant governmental sources for guidance.  Please reach out to one of our ACS campuses if you have any questions.
