FRACKVILLE, Pa. — The waiting room is empty at Cornerstone Coordinated Health Care in Frackville, but the parking lot is getting a lot of traction.
“How can we see patients and keep them safe and out of the waiting room to limit exposure?” asked medical director Dr. James Greenfield. “One of the things we came up with is drive-thru medicine.”
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, Cornerstone is trying to limit almost all foot traffic and the spreading of germs inside the clinic. So if you feel ill and want to be seen, you don’t even have to get out of your car. A doctor or nurse will come to your car.
Signs on the door state that if you show any symptoms associated with COVID-19, you must return to your vehicle.
“Our medical assistant will come out and check vital signs. Then me, or one of the other providers, will come out and do an evaluation and decide what needs to be done,” said Dr. Greenfield.
The process to be seen is pretty easy. You’ll have to give the office a call to set up an appointment. Then, when you get here, you’ll park, and somebody will be out to see you.
“It is a crazy time. People are scared. They’re not sure what’s going on, but we’re going to be here. Health care, we need to be on the front line at this point, and this is why we signed up and why we’re here,” Dr. Greenfield added. “We’re not going anywhere. We’re keeping our doors open, and we’re going to do the best we can.”
The COVID-19 virus (Coronavirus), has created a temporary need for some changes in healthcare and the way outpatient offices evaluate and treat patients. We will not close and we will continue to see our patients or anyone who needs outpatient medical care.
To accommodate out patients in the safest way possible to keep possible COVID-19 exposure to minimal risk we are adding two new services as of 3/23/20. The first is Telemedicine. The second is Drive Up Medicine.
COVID-19 has created a short term change to the way we live. To decrease the risk of spread or contracting COVID-19 the most effective thing you can do to stay healthy is routinely wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds. Keep your 6 foot spacing when in public as much as possible to protect you and your loved ones.
If you feel unwell, if you think you have COVID-19 or if you may have been exposed to someone who does, stay home, rest and drink plenty of clear fluids. Keep track of your symptoms. If they persist or worsen call our office.
For more information about COVID-19, please see the CDC’s website which is updated daily.
We will be opening at 12, today April 2nd, due to the weather.
We will be closed today, March 21st, due to the weather.
Due to the upcoming snow storm, we will be closed March 7, 2018. If you have an appointment scheduled and it has not been rescheduled, please contact the office at 570-794-6123. Thank you and be safe!
