Cone Health Converts Former Women's Hospital to Care for COVID-19 Patients
The former Women’s Hospital now be called the "Green Valley Campus".
The former Cone Health Women’s Hospital in Greensboro will be temporarily converted to care for severely ill COVID-19 patients. These actions will help meet the anticipated increase in volume of infected patients in the days and weeks ahead.
Effective April 13, the former Women’s Hospital (now called the “Green Valley campus”) will open to care for severely ill COVID-19 patients. This site will care for patients who are transferred from other sites or admitted directly by their physician. The site will not have an emergency department.
Alamance Regional Medical Center, Annie Penn Hospital, Wesley Long Hospital and Moses Cone Hospital will focus on providing care for non-COVID-19 patients.
People who need evaluation for COVID-19 symptoms should access a virtual visit or call their physician for care and advice.
“By continuing to strengthen our communities’ efforts to stay at home and practice social distancing, we have a chance to minimize the spread of COVID-19 in our region and across the state. This would limit sickness and save lives, and help to avoid overwhelming our hospitals, physicians, nurses and other caregivers,” says Terry Akin, CEO, Cone Health. “That said, we are proactively realigning our hospital capacity and staffing to care for larger numbers of infected patients in the days and weeks ahead.”
Please be aware of the following for Guilford County:
- Patients from Moses Cone Hospital and Wesley Long Hospital who require ongoing care for COVID-19 may be transferred when appropriate to our Green Valley campus.
- To accommodate the Green Valley campus opening, the Cone Health Center for Women’s Healthcare and Cone Health Center for Maternal Fetal Care have moved to the second floor of the LeBauer HealthCare building at 520 N. Elam Ave. The Center for Maternal Fetal Care began seeing patients on April 10. The Center for Women’s Healthcare will begin seeing patients on April 13.
For Alamance and Rockingham Counties:
Patients who live in Alamance and Rockingham counties should continue to use Alamance Regional Medical Center and Annie Penn Hospital for emergency care (whether related to COVID-19 or otherwise).
Patients from these counties who require ongoing care for COVID-19 may be transferred when appropriate to our Green Valley campus.
Individuals who think they have symptoms of COVID-19 should call their physician or other caregiver, or make a virtual visit. Virtual care options include on-demand video calls, e-visits and scheduled video visits available here.
Cone Health reminds its communities of the critical importance of staying at home, frequent hand washing, covering coughs and social distancing.
