Care for patients with probable SARS-CoV-2 infection

We have a restricted area for specific clinical and diagnostic care in Campus Observatorio defined as respiratory emergency triage, where we carry out clinical evaluation of our patients for the correct diagnosis and treatment.

Our capacity is limited, so we request that you ask your treating physician at Centro Médico ABC to send us your request for care directly and it will tell you when we can receive you in respiratory emergencies. This service is not available without this record with your treating physician.

Patients who need medical attention and do not have or are unaware of a SARS-CoV-2 infection

All patients requiring outpatient or inpatient medical care are included in the early detection protocol for COVID-19. Within the protocol, a questionnaire is carried out to detect a compatible clinical picture for the disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, as well as in the test of a diagnostic test (PCR and/or antigen) and an imaging study (chest X-ray or TAC)
