Update: March 24, 2020
Dear Referring Colleagues,
WakeRad UNC REX Healthcare stands with you during these unprecedented times by continuing to provide the outpatient imaging that is necessary for the care of your patients.
Rest assured, we are battling against COVID-19 with a multifaceted approach that includes limiting your patients’ exposure to other patients while in our outpatient facilities. While we remain available to conduct imaging studies that are time-sensitive and/or urgent, we ask your help in triaging those exams which may be safely postponed to a later date.
We are happy to work with your office staff and patients to reschedule screening and non-urgent studies that would be better performed at a later time. For now, consider scheduling those studies that require more immediate attention in the near term, and allowing us to perform your non-urgent imaging when the virus risks in our area have improved.
If you have a patient undergoing investigation for COVID-19 with fever, respiratory symptoms or with travel/close contact risk factors, please notify our scheduling team with this information at 919-232-4700 before sending the patient.
You may learn more about what we are doing to combat the transmission of COVID-19, along with other helpful information, at www.WakeRad.com.
We look forward to resuming normal operations and catching up on all routine imaging that was postponed, as soon as the threat has lifted, and we can all return to life as usual.
Thank you for your confidence in WakeRad UNC REX as we get through this together. Our ultimate goal is the safety of your patients.
Lyndon K. Jordan III, MD, FACR President and Managing Partner
