In an effort to protect hospital patients, Cuero Regional Hospital will funnel all hospital visitors, as well as patients to the Outpatient Clinic, through a single entrance so screening can be implemented. Starting 7 a.m. on Monday, March 16, the screening station for Cuero Regional Hospital visitors and patients will be located at the Cuero Medical Plaza rear entrance. This will be the only entrance to the hospital campus for the safety of patients and visitors and, starting on March 16th, will be open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday - Friday and 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. All wishing to enter the hospital’s campus must be screened prior to entry. The ER Entrance will be used for ER patients only. All ER patients will be screened before ER entry. No visitors after 6 pm, unless there is an emergency situation.
With the exception of the ER, all other hospital campus entrances will be closed until further notice. The Wishing Well Gift Shop (located inside Cuero Regional Hospital) will also be closed starting on the 16th.
All precautions are taken to protect the public and keep within the CDC Guidelines for the COVID-19 virus prevention. All patients and visitors will be screened prior to entry.
