HOPE – The Bobcat Clinic on the Hope High School campus remains available for all health services under screening guidelines issued March 26 by Director Gretchen Carlton.
“The Bobcat Clinic is open and is running normal hours,” Carlton said Tuesday.
However, Carlton emphasized the clinic will continue to operate in keeping with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control throughout the period of the COVID-19 pandemic. She said patients should call prior to arriving at the high school campus, and appointments may be made at 870-722-2733, option 2, to speak with a receptionist.
“All staff, visitors, and patients will be screened upon arrival at the clinic. The door will remain locked to ensure no-one comes in without proper screening,” Carlton said.
Clinic hours are from 7:30-11 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Patients who qualify may also use a “telemedicine” option if they are established patients of NP Kristin Price as their “primary care physician” and have a phone, computer or other device with text/video or valid email/video option.
