To The Steadman Clinic patients:
We hope you are all staying healthy and safe as we navigate our way through these unprecedented times. The COVID-19 pandemic has had an effect on all of us, including the communities that surround our clinics in Vail, Edwards and Frisco, Colorado. As always, the health and safety of our patients is of the utmost importance to The Steadman Clinic, and this continues throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are still actively seeing patients at The Steadman Clinic. To protect the health and safety of all patients and our staff, The Steadman Clinic requests that patients do not bring a visitor with them, effective October 28, 2020. Exceptions to this policy include a parent accompanying a minor patient to an appointment or patients in need of assistance with walking. We will review requests for special situations and encourage patients to plan ahead regarding our visitor policy.
If you require a surgery or procedure, know that our partners at Vail Health have done exemplary work to ensure the safety of patients, staff and visitors to our facility through careful advanced planning and the establishment of a community-wide task force prior to the pandemic. This careful planning and ongoing precautionary steps have allowed the hospital to continue to provide care for those most in need, while The Steadman Clinic effectively treats all of its surgical and nonsurgical patients.
Since March, The Steadman Clinic has practiced stringent infection-prevention protocols to help keep everyone safe and healthy. Thank you for your patience and understanding. We will post updates here on our website and on social media @SteadmanClinic.
If you have a question about an upcoming appointment, please contact us at 970-476-1100.

When you call to schedule an appointment:
If you have an appointment or are looking to schedule an appointment, we ask if you are currently experiencing any upper respiratory symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath). If yes, we ask that you reschedule your appointment 72 hours after you have been symptom free.
Entering the facility:
Effective October 28, 2020, The Steadman Clinic requests that patients do not bring a visitor with them to protect the health and safety of our patients and staff.
Visitors to our clinics will be greeted by screeners who will take your temperature and ask:
- Have you been tested for COVID-19 in the last 14 days?
- Have you been exposed to anyone with COVID-19 in the past 14 days?
- Are you experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms?
When you are checking in for your clinic appointment, our patient representatives will be asking the following questions each time you arrive at all our locations:
- Do you have any respiratory symptoms: fever, cough, shortness of breath?
- Screening for COVID-19 symptoms will continue for anyone entering the facility, and masks are still required in all facilities.
At the office:
We are taking precautions to assure equipment and surfaces are thoroughly wiped down with a multi-purpose cleaner and high-grade disinfectant throughout the day and at the end of each day. Our employees are required to wear masks at all times, and patient-facing personnel wear protective eye coverings and/or face shields. Our reception area is outfitted with protective plexiglass as well.
What you can do:
You can help prevent the spread of coronavirus by following some basic practices: wear a mask whenever indoors or within six feet of another person outdoors. Wash your hands often with soap and water (20-30 seconds), use hand sanitizer as a substitute when soap and water is not available; avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth; cough or sneeze into your arm/elbow and/or please cover your nose/mouth with a tissue (dispose in the covered trash bin); frequently clean and disinfect surfaces and objects.
The Steadman Clinic locations are safe, clean, and personnel wear masks and protective clothing at all times. For patients who do not wish to travel to our clinics at this time, The Steadman Clinic is now offering telemedicine visits for our patients in partnership with modmed®Telehealth.
Patients can download Modernizing Medicine’s PocketPatient™ app on most iPhone (iOS12 and above) and Android devices (v. 7.0 and above).
The Steadman Clinic is committed to providing the best care to all of our patients, no matter the circumstances. As we navigate COVID-19, we remain focused on your health and well-being. Thank you for choosing The Steadman Clinic.
