If you have an upcoming appointment and test positive for COVID-19 or have symptoms, please notify us and we will be happy to reschedule your appointment.

Universal Mask Requirements:

At Kansas Spine & Specialty Hospital, keeping our patients, visitors and staff safe is our highest priority. Based on the continued low community transmission levels, the low prevalence of risk within our organization, and in line with regulatory requirements, we have updated our COVID-19 universal mask requirements.

  • Masking is optional, and we ask that all staff, patients and visitors exercise heightened care to help us avoid reinstating mandatory masking.
  • Mask requirements will resume if the monitored risk indicators begin to rise to the level of need, and if there is an impactful increase in positive cases among patients and/or staff.
  • If you or someone you live with are immunocompromised, it is recommended that you wear a mask at all times.
  • If you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, please wear a well-fitting mask.
  • If you have not been fully vaccinated for COVID-19, it is recommended that you wear a mask at all times while on the premises.
  • If you have traveled to areas that have high incidence of COVID-19 please wear a mask while in the hospital.

Visitation Policy:

  • Visitors will not be allowed if they test positive for COVID-19 or have symptoms.
  • For surgery patients only, two visitors are allowed per patient PER DAY. The visitors must remain in the hospital lobby pending post-surgical consultation. Visitors will be allowed to visit the patient once he/she is situated in the hospital room and may remain until visiting hours end at 8:30 p.m.
