Sick patients coming in with Covid-19 symptoms continues to decline.
As we continue to operate under the Coronavirus situation we are asking that all healthy patient visits be done by appointment only. This would include all physicals, i.e. firefighters, spouses, retirees and school/sports physicals.
The only exception to this will be lab draws for upcoming scheduled appointments. Providers are still encouraging firefighters to have blood work done up to two weeks prior to their appointment.
Under normal times we would allow patients to wait to see if an opening occurred so they could be seen, but currently we are not allowing anyone to sit in the waiting room that does not have a scheduled appointment. If you do arrive to be seen as a healthy patient and do not have an appointment our front desk staff will work with you to find an opening that works for you.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may pose to you, but your safety is paramount.
A new process we have established for sick patients is to have you wait in your car after check in until your room is ready. And as before all rooms will be sanitized after each patient.
As a reminder the Wellness Center hours will be 8am-7pm Monday thru Friday and 9am-4pm on Saturday. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
Remember wash your hands frequently and practice social distancing, wear face coverings when necessary and for those of you on the trucks please use your PPE at all times and practice good hygiene!
