Keep your appointment with telemedicine/telehealth options
At Outer Cape Health Services (OCHS), we are continuing to do everything possible to ensure that our patients are both cared for and kept as safe as possible from transmission of the novel coronavirus. Our new telemedicine/telehealth options mean that you do not have to cancel your upcoming appointments.
As an alternative to in-person visits, telemedicine/telehealth appointments are available to both primary care and behavioral health patients via the use of telephonic and/or video devices. We do realize that not every visit can be accomplished virtually as there are still times when you may need to come in to see us or a specialist. An OCHS nurse will make that determination with you depending on the care you require. Please note: special areas and appointment times are being reserved for non-COVID 19 related visits at all of our health centers.
If you need to schedule an in-person or telemedicine appointment with a medical provider for either a new issue or for follow up of an existing condition, please do not hesitate to contact our Patient Access Center at 508-905-2888. Our behavioral health providers are also successfully filling appointments remotely with clients. Behavioral health clients may also call the Patient Access Center for scheduling assistance.
OCHS continues to offer same-day, urgent care for non-COVID-19 related matters all day at our Provincetown Health Center. Our Wellfleet and Harwich Port sites will split operating days between seeing non-COVID-19 related visits and COVID-19 symptomatic related visits, in order to help limit exposure.
Hours of operation
We remain here for the community; however, health center and pharmacy hours have been adjusted to maintain staffing and fiscal stability during these trying times.
As your local community health center, please know that your health and safety, and that of our staff, remain our first priority during this public health crisis.
