To Our Patients Regarding Operations at SDCA

March 14, 2020

To Our Patients:

As we are engulfed by information, warnings, updates and directives about the COVID-19 pandemic that is affecting our community, we wanted to take a moment to inform you of how South Denver Cardiology Associates (SDCA) are responding to this health threat and what steps are being taken to protect you, our most precious responsibility. Each and every one of our physicians and practitioners are committed to maintaining your health and that of our staff.

As you no doubt have heard, COVID-19 is a highly contagious and potentially serious infection that is easily spread through the community.  You have also heard of unprecedented precautions that have been instituted, such as the closing of schools and universities, cancellation of major sporting events and concerts, and the recommendations for restricting travel, along with the frequent recommendations to maintain good personal hygiene measures such as washing your hands, covering your cough, and maintaining “social distancing”. These general precautions present a challenge for health care facilities, and SDCA recognizes the potential risks – to both our patients and our staff – of bringing together multiple patients at one time in a medical clinic. SDCA continues to monitor carefully the recommendations from our medical resources – such as the Center for Disease Control, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Education and our health system partners. Several changes have been implemented that may affect your visits to SDCA:

Please understand that these measures are largely temporary and are specifically designed to mitigate against the effect that COVID-19 might have on our patients. Please also understand that we making these changes in an effort to protect our patients and staff while maintaining our responsibility to caring for each and every one of you in the most thoughtful way. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact either one of us or your SDCA provider.

Sincerely,

Karyl VanBenthuysen MD

President, South Denver Cardiology Associates PC on behalf of all Physicians of South Denver Cardiology Associates PC
