“MVHS is working vigilantly to take all the measures necessary to protect our employees, physicians, patients and visitors during this pandemic,” said Kent Hall, MD, MVHS Chief Physician Executive. “We will continue to keep our community updated and informed on a regular basis. Once again we urge you to stay home and call your physician if you are sick – do not go to the Emergency Room, urgent care or your doctor’s office. Please make a call first.
