Important Update about Clinical Services
As a health center, we are committed to keeping our staff and patients safe during this COVID-19 outbreak so we can continue to provide essential and urgent services.
Effective March 16, 2020
We are currently open and will stay open to continue to serve clients’ needs including abortion care and prenatal care. If you have any of the following symptoms, please DO NOT come here and instead contact us to reschedule:
- fever >100.0
- shortness of breath
- sore throat
- muscle aches
- unusual fatigue
We are screening EVERYONE at the door. If you have any of these symptoms you will not be allowed in and will be asked to reschedule.
All previously scheduled non-urgent, wellness appointments including annual exams will be postponed until further notice. However, we will continue to schedule visits for ongoing birth control needs such as IUD and Nexplanon insertions or removals and routine Depo injections in addition to meeting with new HRT clients. We will handle inquiries about birth control and HRT refills or changes by phone. We will also continue to see clients in person with immediate concerns such as pain, unusual discharge, STI symptoms, and other concerns. Client advocate appointments will continue to occur via phone/email. Mental health counseling clients will access care via telehealth. We are also exploring telehealth for other types of visits. All decisions about in-person visits and client access may vary and ultimately be subject to clinical discretion.
How to reach us:
Please call 947-5337. Or, if possible, please contact us via email firstname.lastname@example.org or through the Athena patient portal for scheduling questions, prescription refills, etc. as phone lines are currently busy.
No support people will be allowed into the building with clients-please ask your support people to wait in the car or arrange to come back after your appointment.
We appreciate your understanding and patience. We are frequently re-evaluating our plans as circumstances change and are relying on guidance of the Center for Disease Control and the State of Maine. We will communicate any updates on our website or via social media.
