Clara Barton Medical Clinics Now Offering Telehealth Visits for Patients
April 1st, 2020
In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, the medical providers at Clara Barton Hospital and Clinics are doing everything they can to provide their patients with high-quality and compassionate care while ensuring their health, safety and well-being. In addition to in-person visits, they are now offering telehealth appointments, which allows patients the ability to be seen by their medical provider in the comfort and safety of their own home.
Telehealth visits are secure online appointments conducted via video conferencing. This convenient service allows patients who have regularly scheduled appointments and would rather not come to the clinic at this time, to talk with their provider via video chat.
“At Clara Barton Hospital and Clinics we understand the seriousness of the COVID-19 virus and are taking necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our patients and employees,” said Clara Barton Hospital President/CEO, Jim Blackwell. “Although we are taking precautions, it is still important that we are caring for our patient’s everyday medical needs and understand that patients still need to talk to their providers about regular health issues that extend beyond COVID-19. Telehealth visits allow us to continue to provide the personalized care our patients are used to, while protecting them from the possible spread of the virus.”
Telehealth visits are available for patients at all Clara Barton Medical Clinic locations and with all Clara Barton Medical Clinic Providers. To have a virtual visit, a patient just needs to have a mobile device, tablet or computer with a camera and internet connection.
“We want our patients and the entire community to know we are here for you in every way we can be, whether that’s in person or online, and will continue to be here to care for you as we weather this storm together,” said Blackwell.
