Penn Highlands Huntingdon to maintain precautions
As Huntingdon prepares to transition into a less restrictive phase, Penn Highlands Huntingdon — formerly J.C. Blair Memorial Hospital — reminds the public that its hospital and physician practices are open, safe and fully operational.
Penn Highlands Huntingdon also lists the precautions the organization will keep in place to help maintain the safety of patients, employees and the community, all in accordance with the Pennsylvania Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Penn Highlands Huntingdon may allow one support person to be present with a patient undergoing a surgical or endoscopy procedure, or if the patient is in need of assistance.
Entry points for Penn Highlands Huntingdon and any affiliated clinical care settings remain limited to the main entrance, where verbal screenings and temperature checks will continue to take place.
For the safety of patients, staff and support persons, everyone must wear a mask while inside Penn Highlands facilities unless medical reasons render breathing difficult.
