Health First Preparedness

At Health First, the safety of our patients, associates and community is our top priority and we stand ready to protect those who enter our doors. This website will provide you with important information about community health concerns."

What You Need to Know About Zika

The health and safety of our patients, associates and community is always our top priority at Health First. As such, we continue to monitor developments regarding the Zika Virus and work closely with the Brevard County Health Department to report any suspected cases, should they arise.

We have provided guidelines and educational information to all of our associates about Zika symptoms, risk factors and diagnoses. By clicking through the tabs above, you will find similar information, as well as answers to frequently asked questions, to help protect your family and yourself.

What You Need to Know About Ebola

In coordination with the Brevard County Health Department, Health First has expanded our plans, protocols and training in the event a suspected or confirmed Ebola case arrives at one of our facilities. Our plan includes criteria for early detection, isolation and care of our patients.

Here are additional measures we are taking to protect our community.

  • We are conducting system-wide training with our associates.

  • We have obtained additional equipment to protect our associates and others in our community.

  • We have implemented more rigorous evaluations of all patients who come to our facilities. We specifically ask patients about their travel history and symptoms that might put them at risk for a disease, such as Ebola.

  • In the event of any suspicious cases, we would immediately enact our comprehensive isolation procedures.

  • If there is any indication of a highly infectious disease, we would coordinate with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to ensure optimal patient care.
