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 to limit the spread of COVID-19 in our community, we are currently limiting entrance to the clinic to: those with appointments and those who have completed screening by phone for our weekly after-hours clinics on Tuesdays & Thursdays. No visitors or non-essential persons may enter. A patient’s caregiver, or child’s parent/guardian may accompany them. Please do not enter if you have any of the symptoms of COVID-19. Call us for help determining if you need to be tested for COVID-19.
Currently, we are screening for travel and/or symptoms during scheduling of appointments, and by phone once you arrive at the clinic for your appointment or for the after-hours clinic. When you arrive to the clinic parking area, before entering the clinic please call (907) 235-8586 if you have not yet been screened over the phone. If you were already screened over the phone when you made your appointment, and have not developed any new symptoms or been exposed since then, you may proceed inside to the registration desk.
Please help us keep our staff & patients safe: Everyone is required to correctly wear a cloth mask or surgical procedure mask over the nose, mouth, and under the chin when in the clinic – valved masks and buffs/bandanas/scarves are not considered to be adequate protection (surgical procedure masks are available if needed). We are also limiting waiting area seating to allow for proper cleaning in between appointments, as well as asking all patients to wash hands upon entry of the exam rooms.
Call us at (907) 235-8586 for more information.
For COVID-19 testing information, visit sphosp.org. The testing site (SPH COVID-19 Vaccine & Test Site) is currently open from 9AM-6PM daily, in the lower level of the SPH Specialty Clinic on Bartlett Street. No appointment is needed for testing, and COVID-19 vaccination is available by appointment or on a walk-in basis from noon-5pm Monday-Friday. NOTE: Your test results from the SPH COVID-19 testing clinic will only be available on the SPH patient portal, which is separate from your Homer Medical clinic patient portal.

Even if you are vaccinated, it is still suggested to practice physical distancing in public, wash hands frequently, clean & disinfect 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.
