Hospital-based Clinic Visits and Community Health Centers
To reduce exposure to our patients and our care teams, our primary and specialty care clinics are shifting as many appointments as possible to telehealth. Some non-urgent specialty visits and procedures may be delayed until the outbreak has subsided. Importantly, we are asking patients to call their healthcare provider if they are exhibiting any fever or respiratory symptoms before they come into a clinic or urgent care.
Phone and Video Visits
Some patients may also be appropriate for doctor visits by phone or video so you don't need to come to the clinic or hospital. Your doctor will let you know if this is an option for your need.
Care in Cars – By Appointment Only
We will not be able to accommodate walk-ins
In an effort to provide efficient care options to the community, we launched a "Care in Cars" program available in multiple locations throughout the county. As influenza, common colds and respiratory illnesses continue to spread throughout the region, this innovative approach will allow those exhibiting symptoms of illness to be screened quickly, without having to enter a medical facility.
