CHP Adapts to Changing Health Care Needs

GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — Community Health Programs has been adapting rapidly while continuing our care for patients during this COVID-19 emergency. 

Now, instead of an office visit, patient care may happen in a video call (telemedicine), a parking lot tent, in our mobile health unit, in the home, or in an office. Why the dramatic change? COVID-19 dominates our days but thousands of patients still need routine care: for the flu, a tick bite, newborn or pre-natal care, chronic conditions, lab work and more. This is an unprecedented and challenging time but CHP is  adjusting and working creatively to care for our community.
