The Oyate Health Center is continuing to make improvements to help protect the health of our staff and patients. It is important to us that we continue to provide the highest standards of care for our patients while reducing their possible exposure to COVID-19.
We are continuing to track the spread of COVID-19 and we are being proactive in our efforts to prepare for the expected rise in cases.
We have made multiple changes to our medical practices so that we can continue to provide services while doing our part to slow the spread of this virus.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through these difficult times.
Telehealth Provider Visits
In response to calls for flexibility and broadening access to telemedicine services during the COVID-19 public health emergency, certain federal privacy regulations have been relaxed by the Health and Human Services (HHS) Office for Civil Rights (OCR) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). As a result, Oyate Health Center patients can now consult with their medical provider from the comforts of their home.
Curbside Pharmacy Pick-up Available
The Oyate Health Center has created a curbside prescription service for our relatives. This will make it easier for patients to refill their prescriptions without having to enter the facility.
The Oyate Health Center’s Urgent Care is still seeing patients from 7:00 AM-7:00 PM each day. Urgent Care is a wonderful resource for our relatives to utilize on the weekends. Please do not hesitate to give us a call.
The Oyate Health Center’s walk-in dental clinic is available from 7:00 AM- 12:00 PM on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. On Wednesday, the walk-in dental clinic is available from 12:00 PM to 3:30 PM.
Due to our response to the Coronavirus pandemic and in alignment with Centers for Disease Control and the American Optometric Association recommendations, the following changes will be in effect until further notice:
If you have an appointment in the Eye Clinic, you are asked to come by yourself if possible unless you are a minor or require ambulatory assistance. You will be asked screening questions as you enter the eye clinic and have your temperature taken. If you are having any symptoms of infection, you will need to be screened for COVID-19 prior to being seen in the Eye Clinic. Thank you for your understanding as we work to keep our relatives safe and prevent the spread of Coronavirus.
