The Coalition Health Centers (CHCs) in Anchorage and Fairbanks have been working diligently to manage the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic while delivering the highest level of service to their patients. This has required that the CHCs make difficult decisions to preserve the health of the medical community and to reduce the spread of COVID-19. To respond proactively to the pandemic’s trending, the following actions have been taken:
- The CHCs in both Fairbanks and Anchorage have stopped all Saturday appointments until further notice.
- All patients experiencing flu like symptoms, upper or lower respiratory symptoms, sore throat, fever, etc., must call the clinic upon arrival and clinic staff will advise when to come in.
Anchorage CHC – 907-264-1370
Fairbanks CHC – 907-450-3300
- All telephonic visits will include follow-up calls to check on patients to adjust their care plans or triage based on improvement or progression of symptoms.
- The Coalition Health Centers will continue to monitor the community resources established for COVID-19 testing and utilize those when possible. This plan is being put in place to reduce exposure to our patients and to our medical team and to streamline care and testing.
We appreciate your understanding and support of these actions necessary to manage exposure to COVID-19. The Coalition Health Centers are hopeful that they will be able to re-open Saturday appointments as quickly as possible.
