Complying with the state's order, all elective procedures were canceled until further notice. If you have questions about a procedure you have scheduled, but have not received any notice, please contact your provider.
All visitors to hospitals, and select community ambulatory facilities, will be screened for symptoms, exposure, or travel history
Visitors must wash their hands, or use hand sanitizer, before and after leaving rooms and hospital buildings
All of our employees, whether or not they provide direct patient care, are screened before they are allowed to enter work each day. Our policy extends to employees, providers, vendors, and subcontractors.
Kettering Physician Network remains dedicated to meeting your health care needs. Due to coronavirus, social distancing and hand-washing are key to the health and well-being for our entire community. To support social distancing, we are offering new visit options to serve our patients.
Any of our patients that do not require an in-person exam might qualify for these types of visits. This includes well visits and sick visits.
|Type of Visit||Channel||How it Works|
|Telehealth Video Visits||Online Video||Real-time video and audio visits with a clinician|
|Virtual Check-in||Telephone||Brief 5-10-minute phone call with the clinician|
|E-visit||MyChart||Email with the clinician through MyChart|
These options allow us to offer care in a setting that promotes safety for you and your health care team. In-person office visits remain an option and may be necessary based on your health care needs. Please contact your clinician’s office by phone or MyChart to determine the best type of visit for you. Our team will then direct you to the most appropriate appointment type for your needs.
For those of you visiting the office in person, you will experience new check-in questions and visitor restrictions. These are temporary policies that continue to change as the coronavirus pandemic evolves. If you would like more information, please call in advance of your appointment, and our team will assist you.
Together we can make a difference in reducing the spread of coronavirus. Thank you for considering all these options and trusting your care to Kettering Physician Network.
