While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has offered new guidelines around fully vaccinated individuals not being required to wear masks, masking is still required in healthcare settings and is needed when visiting or seeking care at Summit Pacific. We continue to care for the sick and for those who are immunocompromised and owe it to our community and to our caregivers to keep safety requirements high and be diligent in handwashing, social distancing and wearing appropriate PPE to promote safety and well-being.
Patient safety is our top priority at every Summit Pacific location. If you have an urgent care need or your child is a newborn or needs a wellness visit requiring immunizations, please do not delay your visit.
