Experience Mile Bluff - Trusted. Essential. Healthcare.

To say that the past two months have been challenging, would be an understatement. As we’ve come together to navigate COVID-19 and the changes it’s brought our way, we’ve been forced to look at life differently.

We’ve adapted to a new normal where the unexpected is what we expect. We’ve been educated about what is and isn’t essential. We’ve come to realize who and what we can consistently count on.

Like many healthcare organizations, Mile Bluff has seen a decline in patients seeking care since the arrival of COVID-19. Because delaying medical care can have deadly consequences, we are urging community members to obtain the care they need.

Chronic conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure don’t take a break during a pandemic. Accidents and injuries still happen. Cancer still spreads. Heart attacks still strike. While it’s important to take COVID-19 and the Safer at Home order seriously, postponing healthcare can lead to devastating consequences of its own.

Mile Bluff has enhanced safety protocols at each of its care locations to help protect and reassure you that we can safely deliver the health and wellness services our community needs, even as we continue to respond to COVID-19. We are confident that when you walk through our doors, you will receive the same level of safe, exceptional care you’ve come to expect from Mile Bluff. You will experience trusted, essential, healthcare.

Trusted

Perhaps you’ve heard someone say: “A healthcare facility is the last place I want to be during this pandemic.” In reality, a healthcare facility just may be one of the safest places you could go.

Although the threat of illness is always present, seeking out healthcare is not something to fear – even in the midst of COVID-19. When you choose Mile Bluff, you are in the hands of a healthcare team that has been safely serving the medical needs of the community for over 125 years. Our medical experts stay up-to-date on everyday care advancements, new techniques, COVID-19 recommendations, and everything in between.

Generations of area residents have trusted us to provide excellent care since 1893. You’ve trusted us to help you through the region’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. You can trust us when we tell you that it’s safe to receive in-person care at our facilities.

Essential

The word essential has been used a lot in our everyday conversations these past two months. Just like our understanding of COVID-19, the idea behind what is considered to be essential has evolved over time. In many cases, healthcare that was once viewed as elective, is now being classified as essential. The reason for the change is simply due to the fact that the longer care is postponed, the higher the risk of complications can become.

If you have medical needs, don’t put them off any longer. Contact your primary care provider today to discuss whether in-person or telemedicine clinical care is best for your current situation. Whether it’s a wellness exam, a vaccination, or specific symptoms that have you concerned…seeking healthcare is essential.
