Speare is still here to meet all your healthcare needs
We are in the midst of an extraordinary situation and while much has changed, and masking and social distancing are the new norms, we want you to know that Speare is still here to meet all your healthcare needs. For safety, all staff and any patients coming into the hospital and/or our practices are screened each day, and examination rooms are being cleaned and sanitized between patient visits.
Although elective procedures have been suspended, we are still performing urgent and emergent procedures. Please see the details below regarding our practices and services.
