A note on COVID-19 and our changing world.
As the Tucson community continues to deal with this fast changing outbreak and associated response, SPARCC will continue to monitor and adhere to all official recommendations to do our part to mitigate risk of further spread while remaining open to the patients that need care.
Among the steps we are taking:
- We are reducing our normal hours to limit exposure for our patients and staff. If you call during our listed business hours, please leave a voicemail. We will be checking voicemails frequently and will return your call.
- Our providers are adjusting their schedules to allow for patient needs as well as telemedicine appointments.
- The clinic will be continually disinfected as each patient passes through.
- Our waiting room will be altered to ensure waiting patients and family can adhere to the 6-ft rule.
- Our staff continually self monitors for any symptoms, and will seek medical care and self isolate if any arise
- We all take the official CDC recommendations very seriously and are all staying home and isolating whenever possible
- We ask patients that have any symptoms to stay home and postpone their appointment, seek medical care from their primary provider, and follow the 14 day quarantine guidelines.
- We ask that all people attending the appointment wear a mask in the clinic building.
- We are limiting each patient to one family member or caregiver.
- Expect an altered experience at SPARCC as these mitigation steps become priority.
- Non-urgent and elective visits might be moved upon mutual agreement.
- SPARCC will have Telemedicine visits available for certain appointment types. Call the office to enquire if you are a candidate for telemedicine.
