To all of our WFMC Health patients
Your safety is our top priority.
Our healthcare team stays up-to-date with CDC recommended protocols to limit exposure to or the spread of COVID-19, the corona virus. WFMC Health is taking extra precautions to ensure the safety and well-being of our patients and staff.
We will continue to provide patient services during our regular hours. Our business hours are still Monday through Friday, 8 am to 7 pm and Saturday, 9 am to 2 pm. We accept Medicaid and most private insurance.
We will update this message frequently to reflect any changes.
Now, get care and advice from home
We now offer remote visits by telemedicine. Instead of coming into the clinic, we can see and talk to you at home through your computer or smartphone. Together we’ll decide if you can get appropriate care at home or if you need to come to the clinic or another location.
When you call for an appointment
When you call, please tell us if you have a fever, cough, sore throat, body aches or shortness of breath. That will help us direct your care. Please also tell us if you have travelled recently or had contact with a person diagnosed with COVID-19.
Social distancing is vital right now. Each patient should bring ONLY ONE additional person to the appointment. This will reduce crowding in the waiting area so you can maintain a 6-foot distance from other people waiting.
If you’re an adult …
We will evaluate you over the phone, first. Please call us at (503) 585-6388. We will ask you about symptoms, travel history and potential exposure to COVID-19. That will help us take proper action for your health.
For your child …

We will evaluate your child over the phone, first. Please call us at (503) 585-6388. We will ask you about your child’s symptoms, travel history and potential exposure to COVID-19. That will help us take proper action for the health of your child and your family.
