SCCH QuickCare reopens for well, sick visits; updates visitor policy

By Times Staff

Sullivan County Community Hospital will reopen its Family Practice Associates’ QuickCare clinic for patient well and sick visits starting today

Upon arrival to QuickCare, all patients are asked to call the telephone number posted outside the clinic. After receiving a telephone notification, patients with respiratory-related symptoms will enter through the white tent/green door entrance. To keep patients safe, respiratory rooms will be separated by barriers from other patient rooms.

Patients being seen for non-respiratory illnesses will enter through the main clinic doors after being called for their appointment. The QuickCare waiting room will not be open.

The SCCH Respiratory Clinic will continue to function as a COVID Collection Site.

Family Practice Associates QuickCare hours:

• Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
