UCPA Reopens Surgery Center Following Health & Safety Guidelines

Urology of Central PA reopened our Ambulatory Surgery Center on May 4, with a careful approach to ensure we follow all PA Department of Health and CDC guidelines.

Almost two months ago, we asked you to discuss delaying elective medical and surgical care with your urologist during the COVID-19 threat. Today, we are requesting that you speak with your urologist about resuming your normal care and procedures at UCPA.

Protecting Patients and Staff with the SAFE Approach

At UCPA, we are making every effort to ensure the safety of our staff and patients with some additional protocols in place.

SAFE Approach at UCPA:
Safety protocols: We’ve expanded use of personal protective equipment – for both patients and providers. All of our staff and providers will be wearing masks and following CDC-recommended hand hygiene protocols. We ask that our patients wear masks into the clinic.
Adapting to new ways to treat patients. We will continue to offer telemed/telehealth.
Facility changes – we’ll create more space in the waiting room, fewer patients in the practice at any given day/time, extensive cleaning and sanitation protocols are in place.
Entry into the clinic – everyone will be screened prior to entry.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we work to keep everyone safe!
