UPDATED Coronavirus Statement from The Outer Banks Hospital and Medical Group

Due to the spread of COVID-19 in eastern North Carolina, The Outer Banks Hospital is now prohibiting all visitors.  To accommodate special circumstances on a case-by-case basis the following areas will allow ONE healthy adult visitor (after an on-site screening):

  • Maternity and Postpartum Unit
  • Clinics located inside the hospital
  • End of life patients
  • Discharge pick up
  • Emergency departments - pediatric patients and patients requiring assistance only
  • Other situations on a case by case basis.

Our Outer Banks Medical Group practices are allowing one healthy adult visitor per patient.

Beginning Monday, March 23, The Outer Banks Hospital is rescheduling outpatient procedures and visits that can wait a few weeks.  Examples include screening mammograms, bone dexa scans, and some rehabilitative therapy.  If you have a scheduled appointment over the next two weeks for one of these appointments, and it can be delayed, you will receive a call to reschedule your appointment. 

Outpatient walk-in lab is open; however, we strongly encourage patients to delay coming in if their test can wait a few weeks.  A good example is an annual wellness lab draw.

Medical Records will temporarily change the process to request and receive your medical records. Please call 252-449-4527 Monday-Friday between 8:00am-4:15pm and we will have your records mailed. When calling please share if your need is urgent and we will provide an alternative pickup process.

The Outer Banks Medical Group is offering virtual visits (phone or computer) for established patients in order to continue care and limit potential exposure to the virus.  If you are an established patient of an Outer Banks Medical Group practice and you need to be seen, please call the office to see what options are available to you and your unique situation. Visit https://www.theouterbankshospital.com/Locations for contact information. If you already have an appointment scheduled, our staff will be reaching out to you. 

Thank you for doing your part to help slow the spread.
