Marian Regional Medical Center continues medical services during pandemic


SANTA MARIA, Calif. - When it comes to healthcare some may feel nervous about coming in for treatment, especially during the pandemic.

"My parents are older and my aunts and uncles are older are a little hesitant to come in for services," says resident Carlos Castaneda of Santa Maria.

But doctors at Marian Regional Medical Center in Santa Maria say all of their services are being offered.

"Our hospitals all across the central coast are still providing services as they normally would," says Dr. Scott Robertson at Marian Regional Medical Center.

As the number of COVID-19 cases continues to escalate, doctors want people to seek medical care if needed.

"We want to people who need medical care to continue to seek medical care at the local emergency department ... we don’t want folks having heart attacks or strokes or other types of serious life-threatening illnesses without treatment," says Robertson.

Doctors say focussing on health as a priority could make all the difference in your well being.

"It’s very important that people continue to take responsibility by wearing a mask continue, limiting your exposure to those outside of your own home and keeping your hands clean.

Doctors say those who don’t seek proper medical care can put themselves at a greater risk.
