[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]As we learn more  about COVID-19, we have been adjusting our patient protocols. The latest change we are affects two of our satellite offices: Bella Vista and Trolley Square in East Haven.

Because we are committed to providing our patients with a the safest environment we can, we are following the guidelines set by the CDC (Center for Disease Control) which instruct us to provide patients a 6 foot distance from others.  In order to make sure that our patients have this room, we are limiting the size of all patient parties.  Starting tomorrow, anyone coming to FHCHC for an appointment or lab work may only bring one additional family member/friend into the health center during their appointment.  Anyone arriving with more than one additional person will be asked to reschedule their appointment and sent home.

Both the Bella Vista and East Haven/Trolley Square office operate within a small footprint and do not allow us to provide our patients the CDC-required space.  Any patient who normally visits us at either of these locations can call us at 203-777-7411 and make an appointment at any of our other locations, including our new Branford office, Shoreline Family Health Care.

We realize these changes create challenges, but they also help us provide a safer environment for our patients.  Access to health care is still our mission, but patient safety is always our number one priority.  We are grateful to our patients for their role in helping to control the spread of COVID-19.

We will continue to update our website and our patient care protocols as we receive new information from the CDC (Center for Disease Control) and our State and Local Health Departments.State and Local Health Departments.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
