Masks required during entire visit:
Should I schedule my annual wellness visit or screening with my provider?
Goshen Health is requiring masks at all locations for your entire visit. Wearing face masks in public areas is an important step in slowing the spread of the virus.

Yes. All Goshen Physicians locations are now open and delaying care is not recommended. Your safety during your visit is your primary care provider’s top priority.
I understand the numbers in Elkhart County continue to rise. What has that meant to the hospital’s ability to handle cases?
Goshen Hospital has sufficient testing and COVID-19 beds available. By early February a response team was organized to lead the organization through the pandemic. This team coordinated everything from managing supplies of personal protective equipment (PPE) to creating special temporary units at the hospital to provide enough beds to safely manage a surge in COVID-19 patients.
Meeting screening requirements:
Anyone coming into the hospital (or any other Goshen Health facility) will be screened for COVID-19: If you have a fever, cough, shortness of breath, flu-like symptoms – or if you have been in contact with someone who has the virus – you may not be permitted to enter.
Is it safe to come to the hospital if I have an emergency?
Yes. If you are having an emergency, it could be far worse for you to postpone seeking treatment. We have implemented precautions to minimize exposure for patients, staff and visitors. These include restricting visitors, enhanced cleaning and disinfecting, social distancing and using personal protective equipment when warranted – all according to strict clinical guidelines.
Will I be able to have my test (lab, imaging, radiology, etc.) done at Goshen Hospital?
Yes. Please check with your healthcare provider to confirm the timing of your test. Please note that you will need to have an appointment. We’re not accepting walk-ins currently. You can call (574) 364-2405 to schedule your appointment directly.
May I visit someone in the hospital?
We now are allowing some visitors, please check with screeners to see if you are permitted. Review full details on visitor restrictions.
