Thank you for choosing Cabrini for your treatment and care.

While many people may feel nervous about attending hospital at this time due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, I want to reassure you that Cabrini remains safe to attend for your healthcare needs.

Our services remain open and our staff are committed to delivering the same quality and compassionate care you have come to expect.

At Cabrini, you can be confident you are being cared for in a safe environment.

We have stringent infection control processes to ensure the safety of our staff, patients, residents and visitors and our team is well-equipped to diagnose and manage infectious diseases, including coronavirus.

Cabrini is part of a coordinated healthcare sector response to manage the coronavirus situation, and we are following all Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) guidelines and recommendations.

Of course, everyone has a role to play here, so I ask that you please follow the guidance provided by our staff, online and on display at our sites.

We understand this is a challenging time for our whole community, including those with loved ones in hospital, and we appreciate your ongoing support.
