PRMC announces entry point changes during coronavirus pandemic

SALISBURY, Md. – Starting tomorrow, March 31st, PRMC will implement a central entry point for patients with scheduled appointments and procedures.

With the exception of the Richard A. Henson Cancer Institute and Guerrieri Heart & Vascular Institute patients, all must first report to the Hanna Outpatient Center entrance. Officials say this will be the only entry point for general patients with a scheduled appointment or procedure, including surgeries.

This entrance will be open seven days a week, from 6 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Patients of the Richard A. Henson Cancer Institute may continue using the cancer entrance on Route 13. This entrance will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. during the week, and closed on weekends.

The Guerrieri Heart & Vascular Institute entrance on East Carroll Street will be open Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m., only for patients with scheduled cardiac procedures. Vehicles will be valeted at this location, but patients can self-park in the Guerrieri lot. Patients with weekly appointments scheduled after 11 a.m. are asked to report to the Hanna Outpatient Center entrance.

Every patient, as well as required and approved escorts, will be screened on entry. If there is a concern, those patients will be asked to wear a protective mask, and if there is a concern with the escort’s health, they will be asked to leave the building and remain in their vehicle.
