Effective today until further notice, the Monroe County Hospital & Clinics is redirecting patients visiting the Medical Clinic and Dr. Adler’s office due to a waterline break during the extreme cold temperatures. Adler’s office, as well as the business office and waiting room in the medical clinic, experienced a fair amount of water damage requiring drywall and carpet to be replaced along with a prolonged period of “drying out” and cleaning. Repairs are expected to take approximately two weeks.
Until further notice, all patients seeing providers in the medical clinic or those who have appointments with Dr. Adler should enter through the main entrance under the canopy of the hospital.
Medical Clinic patients will check-in and register with the staff that has been relocated to the hospital main entrance. Staff will direct patients to the proper waiting area to be seen by their provider as usual. Aside from the entrance relocation and waiting area, patients should expect to receive care as normal. The Medical Clinic is otherwise fully operational; appointments may be made by calling the clinic at (641) 932.7172.
Dr. Adler’s office has been temporarily relocated to the south end of the hospital near the inpatient floor. Patients should enter through the main entrance of the hospital under the canopy and follow signs back to his temporary office. A directional handout will be available at main registration as well and staff is available to assist patients to this area. Patients may continue to reach Dr. Adler’s office by calling the regular number at (641) 932.7614.
Todd Willert, CEO, adds “I want to thank our staff for their outstanding response to this situation. They have worked tirelessly to ensure that we remain fully operational while maintaining the safety of our patients.” He also wanted to thank the public for their patience while we work through these temporary relocations.
