To our Valued Patients,
In accordance with Governor Ron DeSantis’ Full Phase 1 reopening the State of Florida, Florida Orthopaedic Institute continues to implement appropriate policies and best practices in an effort to keep our patients and employees safe. These practices include preventive measures at every office entrance, temperature checks and asking the appropriate COVID-19 related questions, proper use of personal protective equipment (for both employees and patients) and constant, thorough disinfecting of every station. Your safety is our utmost priority.
As of May 4th, elective surgeries are once again being performed. Gov. DeSantis’ announced ‘Executive Order 20-122’ which allows hospital ambulatory surgery centers and office surgery centers to resume elective procedures so long as they follow the appropriate measures. The facilities must have the capacity and ability to convert beds in the event of surge situations. They must have proper PPE and provide support to nursing facilities and long-term care providers.
Effective June 1st, Florida Orthopaedic Institute’s offices will be fully operational as our Citrus Park and Northdale clinics reopen. With all locations open, we will continue practicing the safety protocols mandated by the CDC and other relevant healthcare professionals. We thank you for your patience during the last few months and look forward to taking care of all your orthopedic needs and keeping you active.
Roy Sanders, MD
President and Chief Medical Officer
