Major Update for One-Nineteen Facility - Tuesday, March 17

Effective Wednesday, March 18th, entrance to the One-Nineteen facility will be limited to the doors at the conference center, which is between the main covered entrance and the surgery center entrance. All patients must enter through the conference center, and all patients will be screened for fever before entering the building. There will be staff there to help direct you to your destination in the facility.

The gym, including swimming pool, will be closed until further notice. The spa and gift shop will also be closed. Distancing protocols will be in place while you are in the One-Nineteen facility, including BIMA. Elective surgeries and elective imaging studies have been postponed by St. Vincent's Health System, including mammograms and colonoscopies.

When you arrive at BIMA on the third floor, a BIMA staff member will take your temperature again. Anyone who is sick upon arrival will be placed in a quarantined area away from well patients for further testing and diagnosis. Please note that we do not have the ability to test for COVID-19, but if you have reason to believe you may have the virus, you can access testing at Church of the Highlands Grandview Campus located at 3660 Grandview Parkway, Birmingham, AL 35243.
