Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the White River Health System is taking extra precautions to ensure the safe delivery of medical care. For appointments not requiring treatment, patients can utilize WaveLink, WRHS’s telehealth service. If a patient needs to be seen in the clinic, patients are asked to call in advance and wait in their car until the staff calls them back for their appointment. Each patient is screened before entering the clinic, and all staff and patients are to wear masks during the appointment. The staff is deep sanitizing between each patient and has spaced out appointments to allow for additional cleaning.
