To help provide needed complex chronic disease management and select preventative services for patients during the COVID-19 pandemic, AnMed Health’s outpatient practices take the necessary precautions to make each location as safe as possible.
Patients may be asked to wait in the parking lot or use various entrances and exits. Patients should wear face coverings. They should maintain social distancing while checking in and out, sitting in the waiting room, or being around other patients. Our waiting rooms may be altered or divided to keep patients distanced from each other.
Employees wear personal protective equipment, such as masks, gowns and face coverings. They also keep the practice thoroughly cleaned. Following these steps and others will help protect patients and staff – a top priority of AnMed Health.
To protect the health and safety of patients, employees, and visitors, AnMed Health will implement a policy beginning August 6th, 2021 requiring all AnMed Health team members, including employees, volunteers, students, and on-site vendors and medical staff members to either receive the COVID-19 vaccine or take alternative steps to reduce risk of infection. Unvaccinated individuals will be required to wear a mask at all times, complete education modules, and participate in routine COVID-19 testing. All team members must either receive the vaccine or request an exemption by September 30th, 2021.
AnMed Health has multiple visit options. Telemedicine is an efficient, virtual option that can help you avoid visits to the ER, doctor’s office or urgent care and keep you and others safe from spreading COVID-19. This can help ensure that you limit your exposure to others so that you don’t put yourself or others at risk.
We are able to provide care for you in multiple ways, so if you have a health care need during this time of social distancing, please send a MyChart message or call your physician's office to ask what type of visit works best for you. In addition to continuing to provide excellent in-person care when needed, we provide telemedicine through:
- Telephone check-ins.
- Video visits using FaceTime or Google Duo.
If you do not have a primary care provider, our CareConnect locations in Anderson and Clemson remain open with usual business hours. E-visits are an option for at home care for certain conditions. Visit here for more information.
