Keeping you safe

As we restart elective surgery and reopen physician offices, we are changing our screening questions based on the changing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic. We know some of these questions may feel personal, so you have the option to read the questions. When you arrive at ACMC, our screeners will take your temperature and ask you: • Do you have any of the following symptoms? • Fever • Cough • Difficulty breathing • Loss of taste or smell • Muscle pain • Diarrhea • Are you waiting for results of a COVID-19 test? • Have you tested positive for COVID-19? (in the past 28 days) • Do you have a household member that is positive for COVID-19? We encourage all patients arriving at ACMC to wear a mask. If you don't have one, we can provide you with a mask. Please practice social distancing while at ACMC and any of our provider offices.

ACMC Welcomes family medicine provider Zane Zimmerman, DO

Ashtabula County Medical Center welcomes Family Medicine provider Zane Zimmerman, DO. He sees patients full-time at Jefferson Family Health Center alongside Catherine Bishop, DO; Andi Tirounilacandin, MD; Ravi Chimalakonda, MD; and Peggie Reinhardt, FNP. ACMC’s Family Medicine providers specialize in caring for the whole person. In addition to being your partner in overall health and wellness through physicals and treating things that pop up like the flu or sinus infection, primary care providers are often the first to recognize symptoms and risk factors of chronic conditions like heart disease and diabetes. They develop a course of care to help the patient achieve the best possible outcomes, and, when necessary, coordinate care with a specialist. Board Certified in Family Medicine by the American Osteopathic Board of Family Physicians, Dr. Zimmerman earned his Doctor of Osteopathy from Ohio University in 1993. He completed an internship and residency at Clarion Hospital in Clarion, PA. Jefferson Family Health Center is located at 234 S. Chestnut St., in Jefferson, and also offers on-site laboratory, physical therapy, and radiology. To schedule appointment with Dr. Zimmerman, call 440-997-6969.

Statement from ACMC Healthcare System President Michael Habowski

Every step ACMC has taken to-date – and every step we will take in the weeks ahead – is with one goal in mind: making the best decisions that will keep our patients, caregivers and communities safe based on the information available to us. We know this is a challenging time for everyone. We will get through it by working together. Please follow the guidelines of social distancing, frequent handwashing, coughing and sneezing into a tissue or the bend of your arm, and avoid touching your face with your hands. ACMC is licensed for 249 beds. We have a plan in place for where we would cohort patients diagnosed with COVID-19 to keep them isolated from other patients. We also have a surge plan in place that can be rapidly activated to accommodate a sudden influx of patients with COVID-19. This plan includes other areas of the hospital where we could add beds, as well as working with community organizations for placing patients there. It’s important to remember that these types of plans existed long before COVID-19. They are part of our everyday emergency preparedness plan so we are ready to respond to any situation that presents itself.

ACMC has received donations of cleaning and sanitizing supplies; face shields, goggles, masks, and gloves; and protective clothing such as coveralls, and gowns.  In addition, many local residents are collecting supplies or making masks for caregivers and patients to wear. Local companies donating supplies to ACMC include (as of March 31): A Louis Supply, Aramark, Arthur Louis Steel, Ashtabula Area City Schools, Ashta Chemicals, A-Tech, Chromaflo, CJ Contractors, Conneaut Schools, Continental Structural Plastics, Gabriel Performance Products, Geneva Family Dental, Ineos Pigments JoAnn Fabrics, Kelley Steel, Kent State University – Ashtabula, Members of Boilermakers Local 744, Molded Fiber Glass, National Retail Outlet, Steven’s Construction, and Vincent Homes. The donations began arriving at ACMC in mid-March and continue to increase at a time when items are becoming scarce from national suppliers. While ACMC currently has an adequate supply of personal protective equipment on-hand, when patients who are COVID-19 positive begin to arrive, those supplies can go quickly. All of the donated supplies are being stored securely so ACMC Caregivers will have them available the moment they are needed.
