Barton’s Response to COVID-19

Barton Health has the resources and expertise, along with emergency management preparation to provide appropriate care for COVID-19-afflicted patients.

The safety of our patients and staff continue to be our top priority and our offices have implemented safety precautions including requiring face masks, screening patients, limiting visitation, updated common areas for social distancing, heightened disinfecting practices, and limiting some appointments and procedures. Your doctor will determine if your care is appropriate for a virtual or in-person visit. Please call your doctor's office to speak to your health team about your care.

Under the guidance of the CDPH, as well as national, state and local health authorities, Barton is prepared in case of a surge in patients seeking medical care and has plans ready to add capacity across our health system. Plans allow for doubling of bed capacity in secure and safe locations throughout the hospital campus to accommodate patients who may be infected by the virus. This capacity increase will result in approximately 150 total acute beds, with 25 intended for intensive care patients, and nine ventilators and eight emergency rescue ventilators.
