COVID 19 Update

A BIG THANK YOU, to you, our patients and clients, for doing your part during this current health crisis. You are the important folks that we serve every day, and you are doing what needs to be done to protect your community.   We remain open to deal with the most urgent matters regarding your health. Thank you for being open to the phone calls, wellness checks, and the triple screening that happens from when you call in, arrive and are seen in the clinic. Your patience and understanding helps to keep our staff, the families that they go home to at night, as well all folks entering the clinic all safe.

I know you are staying home and social distancing. It is hard being away from friends and family, but again, it protects us all. We hope that by the time the warm weather comes that this situation will start to resolve.   We are starting to know more about this Virus, but we still do not know enough. Teams of specialists are working on this around the clock to learn more and therefore understand how to stop it. Your community, from grocery store clerks to the government, is working to keep you safe as you procure only the necessities that you need.   Your hospitals are planning and ready to provide necessary services. Your primary care providers are here for you.

Here at the CHC, we have altered how we work to reduce the exposure of you and our staff. We have limited staff working in clinic, therefore most staff are working from home, but we are still available for phone calls. If you need to be seen in clinic, you are not likely to get your own provider, but each one of our doctors, nurse practitioners and nurses are ready to help. We are open from 8:30-4:30 Monday-Friday for scheduled appointments only. No walk-in appointments.

Our Chatsworth Clinic is closed – however Susan and Amy are working from Markdale to provide your care.

Our Flesherton High School Clinic is closed- but students can still access the dietitian, Nurse practitioner and counselor through our regular clinic number and they will get back to you.
