OGA Women’s Health and Updates Regarding COVID-19

June 30, 2020

To Our OGA Community – 

At OGA, we are dedicated to creating vibrant communities, one woman and one family at a time.  

Thank you for doing so well with social distancing.  It is keeping us all safer. We know it is hard but please keep going!

We have made many changes to our practice to do our part to minimize the spread of COVID-19 and to keep our Patients and Staff safe.  Some of these changes include: adhering to a no visitor policy for all clinic appointments (exceptions include: translators, necessary personal caregivers, parents of minor patients, and mothers with infants), limiting Patients in waiting rooms (some chairs have been removed, Patients may be taken to exam rooms sooner, Patients may be asked to wait outside or in cars when safe to do so), additional cleaning and sanitizing of commonly touched areas, adding plastic barriers between Patients and Staff, Employees are working from home whenever possible, Staff are wearing face coverings, and Patients are currently required to wear face coverings at all times while in an OGA office.   

We want to continue our commitment to you and the community of being smart about giving excellent care through this crisis.  

As you know, we are still open and still seeing patients in clinic, delivering babies at St. Luke’s Meridian and St. Luke’s Nampa and performing surgeries.  We are also available for telehealth where indicated and hope we can continue to accommodate everyone’s needs. 

As we move through this unique time, we will make conscious decisions so we can continue to safely provide quality Women’s Healthcare.  

Thank you for your trust.
