Alder Health Services To Continue to Provide Care To Our Community Announcement of Changes To Programs And Services During The COVID-19 Crisis

We want you to know that we are here for you and will provide care for the community through the COVID-19 crisis.  Based on the public health information and guidance that we are receiving from the PA Dept. of Health and the CDC, we will be providing primary care, behavioral health, and psychiatric services through telemedicine only to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus in our communities. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation for any changes. We hope to resume our normal activities as soon as possible and will provide regular updates when any changes to operations occur.

The following programs will be suspended until further notice:

WEDNESDAY NIGHT WALK-IN STI & HIV TESTING

MPOWER PA PROGRAMS

WELLNESS CENTER AT ALDER HEALTH ACTIVITIES

PERSONS WHO INJECT DRUGS (PWID) OUTREACH
 

Services to Continue with Modifications

  • Primary medical care will continue on a limited basis via telemedicine.  our Medical Director, physician, pharmacist and the medical clinic team will triage patients for acute care, follow-up appointments, prescription refills, and other priority health care needs.

We ask that you follow these guidelines to help us keep our staff, other patients and YOU healthy:

  • If you are sick, call us at 717-233-7190 and share your symptoms (cough and/or fever) BEFORE planning to visit us. To limit your exposure to additional illnesses, our team will evaluate and treat you over the phone if possible. If you still need to come to Alder Health to be treated, we will coordinate with you and our providers to have you seen as quickly as possible.
  • We will give you a mask to wear and get you in a private room when you arrive if you are here for a medical appointment. Before receiving a mask, cover any coughs and sneezes with a tissue to help prevent the spread of germs and throw all used tissues in the trash.

PLEASE DO NOT WALK INTO THE HEALTH CENTER WITHOUT HAVING BEEN PRE-SCREENED BY OUR MEDICAL STAFF.

We ask that you follow these guidelines to help us keep our staff, other patients and YOU healthy:

  • Behavioral Health Services  (therapy and psychiatry) will continue via telehealth/telepsychiatry. Your therapist/psychiatrist or the scheduling team will contact you to explain how to access behavioral health services remotely. Please contact your therapist if you have any questions.   
  • Case Management & Support Services will continue via phone only until further notice. There will be no home or office visits but your case manager will be available to address any needs you may have. Please contact your case manager if you have questions or require medical or support services.
