Flu season visitor restriction – age 16 or older (Restricción de visitantes durante la Temporada de Influenza (Flu) – Mayores de 16 años.)

Flu Season Visitor Restriction

Visitors temporarily restricted to age 16 or older

As a safety first organization, Christiana Care is implementing a temporary visitation age restriction starting Friday, Jan. 18. This temporary restriction protects patients, their loved ones and health care workers during this time of extremely high number of influenza cases and other respiratory illnesses circulating in our community.

The new restrictions limit visitors to patients in Christiana and Wilmington hospitals to persons age 16 or older. Children and teens younger than 16 years are most likely to get the flu and remain contagious longer than adults. This restriction does not apply to outpatient and ambulatory services. We began restricting visitors under the age of 16 years in our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Women’s and Children’s areas on Jan. 18.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Restricción de visitantes durante la Temporada de Influenza (Flu)

Temporalmente solo se permiten los visitantes mayores de 16 años.

Como una organización que promueve la seguridad ante todo, Christiana Care está implementando una restricción temporal en la edad de visitantes a partir del viernes 18 de enero. Esta restricción temporal protege a los pacientes, a sus seres queridos y al personal de cuidados de salud durante esta época con un número extremadamente alto de casos de influenza y de otras enfermedades respiratorias que circulan en nuestra comunidad.

Las nuevas restricciones, en los hospitales Christiana y Wilmington, sólo permiten visitas a pacientes de personas mayores de 16 años. Los niños y adolescentes menores de 16 años son más propensos a contraer el flu y son contagiosos por más tiempo que los adultos. Esta restricción no aplica a las áreas de servicios ambulatorios. Comenzamos la restricción de visitas a menores de 16 años en nuestra Unidad de Cuidados Intensivos Neonatales (NICU) y en las áreas para Mujeres y Niños desde el 18 de enero.

Gracias por su comprensión y cooperación.

Heart Care at Concord

Caring for your heart has never been easier. Heart care at Concord Health Center brings Christiana Care Center for Heart & Vascular Health cardiologists and cardiovascular testing under one roof, at a location that offers easy access to people in southeastern Pennsylvania and northern Delaware.

Cardiology

Physicians at Christiana Care Cardiology Consultants, located within Concord Health Center, will partner with you to keep your heart functioning as efficiently as possible. Our cardiologists offer excellent care by developing a treatment plan to manage your heart’s health.

Your Concord cardiologist has special expertise in treating and preventing diseases of the heart and blood vessels. Your care begins with an initial consultation followed by regular appointments to monitor your heart’s function. Your cardiologist can set you on the right course to prevent heart disease if you have risk factors or keep it from getting worse if you have already been diagnosed.

To schedule an appointment with a cardiologist at Concord Health Center, call 855-250-9594, and select option 6.

Cardiovascular Testing

Your cardiologist or primary care physician can even order cardiovascular testing that you can have right here at Concord. The tests we offer include:

  • Echocardiogram, which uses sound waves to take pictures of your heart.
  • Peripheral vascular ultrasound, which uses high-frequency sound waves to detect problems in blood vessels such as atherosclerosis (plaque build-up in the arteries).

To schedule cardiovascular testing, you will need a prescription from your doctor that indicates which test you need. To schedule, call 855-250-9594, and choose option 5.
