COVID Safe Care

Caring for you and keeping you safe 

Outpatient services and diagnostic testing services are OPEN with regular hours and schedules.

Telehealth Video Visits

 

You may not need to physically appear in the office to be treated by your provider. ARHS has launched a new telehealth program to ensure patients have safe, convenient access to their providers during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.

Through telehealth visits, patients can meet with a healthcare provider using a computer or mobile device from the safety of their own homes. Telehealth is most appropriate for routine visits such as simple acute care (sick visits), follow-up, wellness visits, and behavioral health concerns like depression, anxiety or grief.

Call your provider or request an appointment online to see if telehealth is right for you.
