Coronavirus (COVID-19) update:
TRIA and HealthPartners, in collaboration with other healthcare organizations and government agencies, have decided to delay all elective surgeries, procedures and non-essential radiology services during the coronavirus outbreak for the safety and care of our patients and team members. If you have an existing appointment, we’ll call you and help you reschedule. Urgent or emergent conditions such as fractures continue to be seen at TRIA sites. Patients should call ahead of coming in so we can properly care for you upon arrival.
Video visits are now available, making it safer and easier for you to get the medical care you need during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. You’ll get the same personalized care, expert answers and treatment plans tailored to you as you do in an in-person visit.
For information on prevention, symptoms and what to do if you’re feeling sick, visit our COVID-19 information page.
Thank you for your understanding.
