Hospital Preparedness

For more than 117 years, it has been the mission of our hospital to provide safe, high-quality care for anyone who comes through our doors. We understand people are feeling anxious about potential exposure to the coronavirus (COVID-19), but we want to reassure our patients, their families and visitors that Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center (PVHMC) is a safe, high-quality facility to seek medical care.

In response to the growing number of positive cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in the United States, Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center (PVHMC) has taken the necessary steps to ensure it is prepared to care for its patients and the community and is adhering to the infection control and testing protocols set forth by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Screening processes are in place for all patients entering clinical areas. Patients experiencing common symptoms of coronavirus including fever, cough, and shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, are questioned on whether they recently traveled from China, Iran, Italy, Japan, and South Korea, or have been in close contact with someone who has.

The hospital has isolation exam rooms and in-patient rooms ready to quarantine any suspicious cases during testing and treatment. It has an adequate supply of personal protective equipment and the appropriate protocols in place to protect both patients, visitors and staff in the event that a person with coronavirus seeks care at the hospital or its five Pomona Valley Health Centers in Claremont, La Verne, Pomona, and Chino Hills.

Like all challenges that our Hospital and community have faced in the past, we will get through this together and our Physicians, Associates and Volunteers are here to care for you.
