Visitor Policy Flyer Protecting you means we need to limit the number of visitors to the campus while the threat of COVID-19 transmission is high.
Visitors will not be allowed in our outpatient clinics (Primary Care, Women’s Clinic, Dental, etc.). The only exceptions will be (1) an asymptomatic parent of a minor patient, and/or (2) an asymptomatic care provider of a patient with a cognitive impairment. PIMC staff will be available to escort patients with disabilities to and from their destinations.
Please do not bring children under the age 13 unless they are actively receiving care. Your support and cooperation with these temporary guidelines is appreciated. We know it is difficult to not be able to visit your friends and family, and we understand, but these steps are necessary and will help keep you and your loved ones safe and protected.
You may be able to use a telehealth option for your appointment. A telephone or video appointment allows you to talk to your PIMC Clinic provider from the comfort and safety of your home. Please give us a call at (602) 263-1695 to discuss your options.
Medication Pickup Yes, our pharmacy is still open and providing a Drive Up Medication Refill service for existing prescriptions. Additionally, you can enroll in Meds by Mail for your refills so you don’t have to come to campus to pick them up.

There are many community members who are needing “back to work” clearance documents for their employers and we need your help in meeting that need. Our urgent care team is working hard to care for those who need it most and our Emergency Department is working hard to care for those with serious health concerns that require immediate medical attention.
