Family Health Centers ask patients to be conscientious about their health during COVID-19 crisis


OKANOGAN - Family Health Centers (FHC) provides guidance for FHC patients seeking care during the COVID-19 crisis. We ask our patients to be conscientious about their health, their families and healthcare professionals by adhering to the following guidance: It’s important to self monitor and remain home when ill.
Symptoms to be especially awareinclude a dry cough and fever. All FHC medical clinics are open to receive patients.
1. IMPORTANT: We ask that patients call ahead to schedule a visit, and inform FHC if they have a fever or cough or any respiratory symptoms. Call us at: 1-800-660-2129
2. Patients with a fever, cough or respiratory symptoms will be advised on where and how to access care.
3. FHC teams are on-hand at all clinics to provide an evaluation and medical care for patients without coming into the clinic. This keeps our staff, other patients and community safe from the spread of Coronavirus, but enables us to continue to serve all patients' needs.
4. Many patients may wish, or would be advised, to postpone routine appointments or receive health care by phone or telemedicine to avoid unnecessary exposure to Coronavirus. Together we will get through this and be a stronger community.
