Bothwell Regional Health Center has made some changes in regard to COVID-19.

For the safety of our patients and employees, effective March 24, 2020 Bothwell Regional Health Center will begin to restrict all visitors. Special consideration will be given for patient guardians, significant others of delivering mothers, patient transportation and comfort care patients.

In the interest of keeping the only ill individuals in the hospital current patients and to conserve supplies for the healthcare workers to be able to take care of ill patients, Bothwell has also made the decision to cancel all elective surgeries. Patients will be notified by the appropriate office to discuss their specific surgery and will be contacted to reschedule when elective surgeries start again.

If you have any questions about COVID-19, the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services has activated a statewide public hotline for citizens regarding COVID-19. The hotline number is 877-435-8411.
