We take a COMPREHENSIVE approach
to orthopedic care with the patient at
the center of our treatment plan.

To Our Valued Patients,

At MSA Orthopedics, we strive to provide the safest and best possible health care available.

As our communities continue to feel the increased impact of Coronavirus, we feel it is
important to share with you what we are doing to help keep people safe and healthy. Please
be assured that we have implemented protocols based on the guidelines of the CDC and
local public health officials.

In addition to our normal protocols for sanitization and safety, we have added hand washing
stations and a screening process at our front entrance for of all who enter MSA
Orthopedics. We’ve instructed anyone, both patients and staff, who are not feeling well to
stay home out of an abundance of caution, and to self-monitor their symptoms for at least
fourteen days. Please know that MSA will have staff available at 229-435-0525 to help with
any needs that arise or any questions you may have regarding these new protocols.

As the situation evolves, MSA may implement additional preventative measures to ensure
Patient and Team Member wellbeing. We are committed to maintaining the safest,
healthiest environment possible and will communicate any necessary changes immediately.

Actions we have taken over the past several years have helped us prepare for scenarios
like this and throughout this process, we have been continuously refining and implementing
new procedures. From hygiene to cleaning and sanitation, we have allocated an abundance
of resources throughout our clinic that go above and beyond CDC requirements. Your
safety is important to us.

Thank you in advance for your patience as we navigate this challenging situation. We will
continue to monitor the situation as it develops. We are committed to continuous service to
our communities, while maintaining our focus where it belongs: on our Valued Patients and
Team Members.

Sincerely,
MSA Orthopedics
