Altru Health has designated the Family Medicine Residency building as a “sick clinic” for those suffering with respiratory symptoms. The clinic site will be staffed with a team following elevated protocols – including the use of personal protective equipment. Altru’s Dr. Josh Deere says patients are still being advised to first call the screening hotline.
Deere says the additional measures will allow for individual care in a separate environment away from other patients.
In addition Altru is evaluating regular appointments on a case-by-case basis - and rescheduling those not considered time sensitive.
The hotline number is 780-6358.
