For release on March 18, 2020

UPDATE 3/21/20: Community is integrating MedChecks and primary care offices. Learn more >>

Indianapolis—In an effort to reduce exposure to COVID-19 in waiting rooms and sites of care, Community Health Network is temporarily consolidating its primary care services.

All but 14 primary care offices will be temporarily unavailable to in-person visits. Those services will instead be delivered virtually.

Patients who have a scheduled primary care appointment will be notified by their doctor about a telehealth appointment.

Those who do not have an appointment but are seeking care can still call the primary care office directly or schedule a virtual visit with another highly skilled provider.

Reducing the number of people in waiting rooms and facilities will help protect patients against potential exposure.
