The Summit Community Care Clinic’s doors are open and workers are providing care amid the COVID-19 public health crisis.

If a telehealth medical provider is concerned that a patient is very ill, an on-site assessment can be scheduled at the clinic on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. 

The goal, Cowie said, is to treat as many patients at the clinic as possible so that they don’t need to go to the hospital’s emergency department.
