Update: April 1st, 2020

GHT now has a reliable source for COVID-19 testing.  If your child is a patient at GHT AND you think your child has COVID-19 or is medically fragile and has been exposed to COVID-19, please contact us for a screening exam.

 

March 24th, 2020

You and your children are safe at GHT!  All patients will be screened for COVID-19 prior to your appointment.

 

All patients are screened via our secure communication app, SpruceHealth, or by phone prior to your visit. If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, we will be meeting you in the parking lot of Growing Healthy Together.  We can assess and screen you further once there.

For those whom we deem safe to enter the office, we use proper precautions to keep all office occupants safe.  In some cases, when we have to blend well patients with sick patients, we are taking the appropriate precautions of screening sick patients in the parking lot.  We are giving all sick patients masks if they need to come into the office for further assessment.

Furthermore, we are separating sick and well patients on our schedule.  We know other offices have a sick entrance or separate sick and well patient waiting rooms.  We are aware that we do not have the ability to provide this service to you.

However, by separating the sick and well patient schedule, by screening all patients before your appointments, and by keeping a clean and disinfected environment, you can be sure you and your family are safe at Growing Healthy Together!

We will offer a parking lot ‘drive-through’ COVID-19 testing service (as soon as more test kits become available).

Please check back for updates on how GHT is innovating new ways to handle this pandemic and the changing healthcare system.
