Axia Women’s Health is committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of our patients, clinicians, and employees amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are continuing to respond to the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Department of Public Health from each state. Visit this page frequently for updates on how Axia Women’s Health is responding to the crisis and how we are ensuring the health of those in our patient community.
Despite the challenges of COVID-19, Axia Women’s Health has taken action to ensure the safety of both our patients and staff through strict, in-office safety protocol and a temporary pause in non-urgent care. However, interrupting the routine care of many patients has not been something we take lightly.
That’s why we are pleased to share that throughout the month of May, Axia Women’s Health will work to safely return patients to our offices for routine care.
We understand this is not a time to let our guard down, and our clinicians and staff will continue diligently working to ensure the safety of those who seek care in our locations. Additionally, our team is in continuous dialogue with both national and local health authorities to ensure proper safety protocol is in place to protect our patients. Ultimately, it is important to address the many clinical needs of our patients, as well as critical health screenings and procedures that have been postponed recently, many of which are essential to maintaining the well-being of our community.
Now that we better understand the risks and spread of COVID-19, we are more prepared than ever to help ensure a safe environment for patients to access care. Our care centers are taking the following precautions, as well as requiring participation from patients, to minimize exposure and help you feel confident in receiving the quality OB/GYN care you deserve. Watch the brief video below to know what to expect at your next visit:
To improve access to care during this difficult time, we have launched AxiaConnect telemedicine as an opportunity to help complete appointments without risking patient exposure. AxiaConnect is secure, HIPAA-compliant, and allows patients to connect to their provider easily via videoconference (from computer, tablet, or phone) from the comfort of their home.

The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed. There are simple everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of any respiratory viruses. These include:
The CDC believes the virus may appear between 2-14 days after exposure. There is no vaccine and treatment is supportive. The virus is spread person to person mainly by respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes. This is similar to other respiratory pathogens like influenza.

Many of the hospitals that we deliver at have instituted new guidelines and protocols to reduce exposure and limit the spread of COVID-19, particularly in the Labor & Delivery Units. Below are links to some of these hospitals’ dedicated COVID-19 pages. If you do not see your hospital here, please visit their website directly to understand their policies.
Axia Women’s Health will continue working to meet the current challenge in order to ensure our patients receive the quality of care they deserve in a safe, comfortable environment.
