Cancer Institutes Patient & Visitor Information
In effort to continue protecting our immunocompromised cancer patients at Miami Cancer Institute and Lynn Cancer Institute against COVID-19, we have updated our visitor guidelines.
Before you Come
Before coming in to one of our urgent cares or emergency rooms, patients are encouraged to bring their regular medications, including metered dose inhalers. Nebulizer treatment is not recommended for COVID-19 patients.
Medical Records Requests
Due to current visitor restrictions at our facilities, no medical record requests can be made in-person.
Upcoming Appointments at Baptist Health
Our physicians continue to see patients both in-office and virtually. Please contact your doctor’s office directly to schedule an appointment. We have always maintained high standards of safety and cleanliness, and have now added new measures to help keep you and your loved ones well.
In order to best ensure social distancing, certain physician offices may not be able to accommodate visitors at this time due to space limitations. If you have an in-office appointment with your doctor, please call ahead to confirm the most up-to-date visitor guidelines for that location.
Select offices may utilize the Baptist Health Care On Demand app for virtual visits. Click here to learn more.
Baptist Health has resumed regular scheduling for imaging and diagnostic tests. If you need to reschedule an appointment, please call 786-573-6000.
Free Virtual Community Health Classes
While you are practicing social distancing by staying at home, you can still connect virtually to a host of Baptist Health Community classes. Whether it's healthy cooking, meditation, stretching, yoga or zumba, we have the option for you and your family. All classes are FREE via the Zoom app.

Baptist Health Doctor Appointments
In most cases, patients should keep their scheduled appointments. At this time, regularly scheduled appointments with our medical group physicians are continuing as planned, though visitor restrictions are in place. We are asking patients to call their healthcare provider if they are exhibiting any fever, cough, sore throat or respiratory symptoms before they come in. If your appointment does need to be postponed, you will be contacted by the office to reschedule.
If you are worried, please contact your doctor to discuss your concerns. If you are a patient who is at high-risk for complications from respiratory illness, your clinic may want to reschedule your appointment.
