Clinical Locations

I have received several questions from some of you about clinical locations at the hospitals this week. Clinicals are occurring at all hospitals. Virginia Baptist Hospital (VBH) was previously not allowing students as a result of a COVID-19 outbreak at that facility. Student rotations at VBH resumed on Monday, October 19th, and student rotations at Lynchburg General Hospital (LGH), Centra Southside Community Hospital (CSCH), and other Centra locations are still occurring. 

The following areas are currently restricted and not allowing any students at this time:
  • LGH Admissions Unit
  • VBH Acute Rehab
  • VBH Centra Specialty Hospital
  • LGH Pulmonary Unit
  • LGH Emergency Room- Students can only rotate on Pods C, D, and E
  • Pearson Cancer Center Units
  • Long Term Care Facilities- Fairmont Crossing, Guggenheimer, Summit, Oakwood Manor
  • Home Health
  • Hospice
  • Bridges

If you were scheduled for clinical or leadership hours at a location that is now restricted, please know that we are doing our best to find alternate clinical locations for you. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding during these uncertain days in the era of COVID-19. Please direct questions related to your clinical locations to your instructors.

Thank you!
