Winter storm safety message for Community Health Network patients: Check in before you head out

For release on January 11, 2018

Indianapolis, IN—In preparation for potential impacts from Winter Storm Hunter, Community Health Network is urging its patients to check in before they head out.

Community will have a closings list available online at eCommunity.com. The network’s call center is also equipped to help patients with questions about their appointments. They can get information by calling 800-777-7775.

In addition, every effort will be made by the clinical site to reach out by phone to patients who are scheduled.

If you do have to head outdoors, keep this in mind, if you're walking on ice:

  • Take short steps, and don’t lift your legs any higher than you have to.
  • Try to keep your center of gravity over your front leg.
  • Most importantly, take it slow.
