Gerber Memorial changes hospital entrances to boost screening, safety
FREMONT, Mich., March 16, 2020 – In an effort to better screen visitors during the coronavirus pandemic, Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial is keeping only a few entrances open for staff, patients and visitors. Starting today, patients and visitors can access the hospital only through the entrance at the Emergency Department.
Gerber Memorial employees can enter through two other entrances, off Maple Avenue and between the hospital and Professional Office Building. Those entrances are open for a limited period during the day, Monday through Friday, and can be accessed only with a valid employee badge and appropriate COVID-19 risk factor screening.
All other entrances will be locked.
Designated parking areas will not be affected: Visitor lots will remain for patients and visitors, and employees will still park in employee lots.
