Marion General Hospital COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS) Statement

With the Indiana State Department of Health’s (ISDH) announcement of the first confirmed case of COVID-19 “Coronavirus” in Indiana, we understand that this may cause you to have concerns. While this first confirmed case was not in our local community, we want to assure you that MGH has been actively preparing for this development by collaborating with state and local partners. We encourage all members of our local community to be active in your role of prevention of all contagious diseases, including influenza. Actions everyone can take include, but are not limited to, vaccination, good hand hygiene practices, covering coughs or sneezes, and staying home when ill.

We are coordinating our efforts to ensure that should you develop symptoms that are of concern for COVID-19, we can minimize the risk to other individuals and healthcare workers while you seek treatment. Communicating with Marion General Hospital prior to arrival with symptoms is key in our ability to provide the safest treatment for you and our staff. If you are directed to Marion General Hospital for treatment, we ask that you call (765) 660-6900 to coordinate your arrival. Your participation in this process is greatly appreciated as we work to minimize risk to our community.

MGH is committed to monitoring this situation as it continues to develop and utilize our social media forums to communicate with you in a timely manner. As we receive updates from the ISDH and Indiana Hospital Association, we will be sharing that information for you to be able to make informed decisions for the safety and wellbeing of yourself and family members.
