Dedicated Block Scheduling during COVID-19

Updated March 19, 2020
Please visit our online COVID-19 Resource Center for Parents

PHCA has implemented new scheduling methods as part of our ongoing efforts to minimize the risks of transmission of any virus, and to protect the health and wellness of our patients and our staff.

We are now using Dedicated Block Scheduling, where appointments are separated into mornings or afternoons based on visit type:

• Weekday mornings will be reserved for wellness visits, as well as other non-illness related visits such medication checks and minor injury.

• All other visit types will be scheduled in the afternoon, and we have expanded our afternoon appointment block to accommodate as many visits as possible.

• Newborn patients' first office visits are still scheduled daily, and will be scheduled in the morning wellness block Mon-Fri, and as the first visit of the day on Sat or Sun. 

• As a reminder, we have expanded Curbside Check-In which is now used for all patient visits.

• Effective for all appointments on or after Monday, March 23, 2020

Please Note: Patients with previously scheduled appointments on or after March 23 may be contacted for rescheduling due to these new guidelines. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
