COVID-19 (coronavirus) Information for Your Area
Baptist Health’s mission is to provide quality patient-centered services and health education and respond to the changing health needs of our state. Our top priority, as always, is protecting the health and safety of our patients and providers.
Baptist Health’s family clinics are open and offering several options for care, from telehealth visits over the phone or virtual visits using video with our primary care providers to in-person visits if necessary for your health care needs.
Please call your clinic to schedule an appointment, whether virtual or in-person, for basic acute care needs, medication refills and more. The clinic can also help with any questions you may have about the process, including how to access a virtual appointment.
All patients whose visit is scheduled as an in-person visit at a clinic will be pre-screened for COVID-19 signs, symptoms and exposure.
