During Phase One, NMCCL will begin scheduling appointments for outpatient services at a limited capacity; appointment availability will still be limited.

NMCCL has not returned to full staffing schedules in order to maintain safe social distancing for our health care workers.

The staff will be making every effort to contact patients whose previous appointments were postponed due to COVID-19.

If a patient has not been contacted by my May 22, they are encouraged to call the Appointment Line at (910) 450-4357.

Several COVID-19 policies will remain in place during Phase One:

  • No Visitor Policy – One (1) healthy adult visitor allowed after on-site screening for these areas: Labor & Delivery, Mother-Baby Unit, NICU, Pediatric Patients (visitor must be parent or caregiver).
  • Face Covering Policy – All beneficiaries and approved visitors must wear a face-covering in the facility.
  • Galley Operations – Authorized patrons are NMCCL staff and approved visitors only.
  • Limited Entrances to Medical Center- Beneficiaries enter the facility through Quarterdeck or Emergency/Trauma Department entrances.
