Thank you for choosing Mission Community Hospital for your health care needs. We are committed to protecting the safety of patients, staff, and the general public while maintaining high-quality care at our hospital.

We always use the best safety practices to protect the health of everyone who comes to our hospital and surrounding campus. Mission Community Hospital is prepared to treat new and emerging diseases, utilizing infection prevention protocols from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We also continue to coordinate closely with local, state and federal health agencies.

Exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis. For those non-clinical individuals allowed on campus, everyone will be screened at designated entry points.
