Our priority is to keep you healthy and safe.

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 the details below prior to your appointment to help you have a better and safe patient experience at your next visit.

In all instances for all patients

If you are exhibiting any of these symptoms before your scheduled appointment, please call (813) 974-2201 and press option 2. 

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chills
  • Repeated shaking with chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Diarrhea

Visitor Policy

Effective Tuesday, July 6, patients may bring up to 2 parents/caregivers/guardians/helpers to their clinic visits. If patient waiting areas exceed our capacity, visitors may be asked to return to their vehicle to participate in the visit virtually. 

Screenings and COVID-19 Testing 

At USF Health, we continue to conduct screenings at our entry points to our buildings for patients and visitors. Entry into any USF Health clinical facility will include screenings which can consist of several questions about your recent exposure risks. Frontline staff and vendors are screened for COVID-19 symptoms daily.

If you are an established USF Health patient and would like to be tested for COVID-19, please call (813) 974-2201.  

PPE and Masks

Our health care providers and staff will continue to follow the appropriate measures to keep our patients safe by wearing PPE masks and gloves, as well as frequently washing their hands. We require all patients to wear a facial covering or mask while in our facilities and practice social distancing measures.

Steps we are taking to promote social distancing at our entrances and clinics

We have reorganized our waiting areas to keep patients a safe distance away from others and have separate waiting areas for patients with respiratory illnesses or symptoms. We also have alcohol-based hand sanitizers available in all of the reception, waiting, and patient areas. Routine cleaning and disinfection protocols take place inpatient areas. 

Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) COVID Testing Guidelines for Day of Surgery  

All Ambulatory Surgery Center patients are screened through the pre-admission process and then again through COVID-19 testing prior to the surgical/procedure date. At any time, if your symptoms change or you have any questions, a member of the USF team is available to address and assist.

All patients are required to obtain COVID testing prior to their day of surgery. There are no exceptions to this policy. All patients will continue to be scheduled for COVID testing.

If a patient has a concern about driving to the Morsani Center for Advanced Healthcare or their test due to travel distance or scheduling issues, they are permitted to obtain a test at a local facility if it meets the following criteria: 

• PCR test only
• Test must be done 72 hours prior to DOS
• Results must be submitted to the ASC team 24 hours prior to DOS. If there are no results by the 24 hour mark, the ASC team will be contacting the patient in order to reschedule their procedure.  

Parking for your in-person appointment

• Valet parking is available at the USF Health Morsani Center for Advanced Healthcare.
 
•  Valet parking is available at the USF Health South Tampa Center for Advanced Healthcare for all visitors for $5, including those with disability permits. Alternatively, visitors with a disability permit who do not wish to use valet may self-park in the garage free of charge and use the courtesy shuttle service from the garage to their destination, round trip. We may make exceptions and park visitors curbside without charge in special circumstances such as a visitor whose disability prevents them from being able to park in the garage (vehicles with hand controls which cannot be valeted) or from being able to use the courtesy shuttle.

Billing

In addition, we have also made updates to our billing policies during this time and continue to offer financial assistance to those with financial hardships. 



MyChart 

USF Health strongly encourages all patients to sign up for MyChart – our free online portal offering patients personalized and secure access to portions of your medical records. With MyChart, you can communicate with your medical care team, view your health summary and routine lab results, review your statements, and pay bills online, request prescription renewals, and more. Signing up is easy – simply call (813) 974-2201 and request an activation code. This code will enable you to log in and create your own user ID and password. You may also request an access code to create a MyChart account at your next office visit.

Telehealth

USF Health Telehealth

Most of our physicians and providers offer appointments through telehealth. When you make an appointment with USF Health, you may be asked to have this appointment via a virtual connection. When viable, this way of connecting with our specialist is an effective way of continuing your care. But for some conditions and situations, an in-person appointment is best. Our team can help guide you through which type of appointment is best for you.
