To Our Community Health Center Patients,

We know that COVID-19 has created a lot of fear and concern about how to access health care services. We understand and want you to know that we are here to serve you, understand your needs and want to support you and your families.

We also know that these times have caused a lot of stress and hardship for you and your families. Please reach out to us if you have financial distress, housing instability, food needs, and emotional distress. Community Health Centers have resources to help you.

Community Health Centers are providing routine care, dental care, behavioral health care, and are providing testing for COVID-19. Our services are available in person and via telehealth on the phone and on video. We have 24/7 Nurse Advice Lines to assist you.

For all appointments, please call to schedule an in-person visit or telehealth visit. We are taking special precautions, cleaning facilities, social distancing, using protective masks and equipment and other actions to protect your health and safety and our employees, too.

Here are a few specific measures we are taking:
We are closely screening patients and staff for COVID-19 risk.
We will offer in-person and Telemedicine visits based on your needs and desires.
All patients will wear a mask.
Staff and providers will be wearing masks and PPE as required
Patients may be asked to wait in their vehicles, or wait outside the building to maintain appropriate patient social distancing.
Visitors will be discouraged unless they are needed to assist patients.
Our care teams will be continually disinfecting exam rooms between patients. We will be regularly cleaning hard surfaces in our offices.
Community Health Centers are here to serve you. We are open, we care and we do not want you to delay getting the care you and your family need. Please call us.
