COVID-19 Updates

At Hillsboro Area Hospital, we are working hard to ensure the safety and wellness of our team members, patients, and the community. As a community, we are asking for your help with this.

Along with frequent hand washing, covering coughs and sneezes and staying home when you are sick, we are also asking that you call into our Emergency Department at (217)-532-4199 before coming in for any Coronavirus concerns. This will allow us to perform an over the phone assessment, provide you with guidance and fully prepare for your arrival to the hospital, if necessary.

These steps are designed to reduce the likelihood of community spread of the disease, protect our caregivers, patients, and all vulnerable populations, as well as preserve healthcare resources so that we can maintain our readiness to care for our community.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in our efforts to keep everyone as safe and healthy as we possibly can.
