Homer Medical Center & SPH COVID-19 Information

Homer Medical Center is open and taking appointments for all regular services, including immunization and other preventive care. To keep our patients and staff safe and limit the spread of COVID-19 in our community, Homer Medical Center is currently limiting entrance to the clinic to those with appointments or who have called ahead to follow the instructions for Tuesday & Thursday evening walk-in clinics.  No visitors or non-essential persons may enter. Please do not enter if you have any of the symptoms of COVID-19.

For COVID-19 testing information, including information about who is eligible for testing, visit sphosp.org. The testing site is currently open from 9AM-6PM daily, in the lower level of the SPH Specialty Clinic on Bartlett Street (turn onto Danview Avenue for parking and proceed to the check-in window. Please wear a mask and use the markers to maintain a 6-foot distance from others waiting in line).

Currently, we are screening for travel and/or symptoms during scheduling of the appointment. When you arrive, park and proceed directly to the screening station outside of the clinic entrance. Everyone is required to wear a mask/cloth face covering when in the clinic. We are also limiting waiting area seating to allow for proper cleaning in between appointments, as well as offering all patients to wash hands upon entry of the exam rooms.

We are using an alternative entrance and designated rooms for any patient who answered “yes” to any of the screening questions and requires medical evaluation .

Call us at (907) 235-8586 for more information. We are all in this together – stay COVID-smart and COVID-safe!


You are encouraged to maintain a physical distance from others of at least 6 feet, practice frequent hand washing, clean regularly used surfaces, wear cloth face coverings while in public, stay home when sick, and get tested if you have been exposed or have symptoms.
