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.
Currently, we are screening for travel and/or symptoms during scheduling of the appointment. We are calling patients the day before scheduled appointments if greater than 2 days between scheduling and appointment time to rescreen. You will be instructed to call when you arrive in the parking area, where we are again re-screening over the phone. 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.
