Making Life Better through
Education, Research & Patient Care.

USF Health continues to closely monitor the evolving coronavirus outbreak. Our priority is to keep you healthy and safe. 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 worldwide outbreak, USF Health is taking every precaution to provide the safest environment possible for everyone. USF Health’s Dr. Christian Brechot, leader of the Global Virus Network, shares the latest on coronavirus research and care.

For Our Patients:

At USF Health, we are working to ensure patient and frontline staff safety continues to be a priority. As State restrictions on hospitals and clinics are lifted, you now have more options for seeing our physicians and providers in-person. To help protect both you and our clinical teams, USF Health has implemented new protocols for when you visit our clinical facilities. 

These measures will make your appointment seem different than previous visits, but rest assured they are meant as added precautions for keeping everyone safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Screening you as you enter our facilities and our team wearing masks are some examples of what you will experience. 

We are taking these vital precautions to protect our patients and our frontline staff and closely monitor the official health guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Florida Department of Health. 

Please review more information on USF Health Patient Care for details about your appointment to help you have a better and safe patient experience at your next visit.
