About Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)


The DMC is working closely with local health departments, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to respond to any potential coronavirus cases in our area. We routinely treat infectious diseases at the DMC. We have strong infection control policies, procedures, and systems in place to screen and treat patients. We are committed to keeping our patients, our staff, and our community safe. For more information about the coronavirus, go to the CDC website or www.michigan.gov/coronavirus
