In response to recent concerns about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Rhode Island, Tri-County Health Centers will no longer accept walk-in appointments.
Each patient will be called and screened prior to any in-person visit. When possible, patients will be scheduled for telephone visits with medical or behavioral health providers. After screening, if you need an in-person appointment at the health center, we ask that you avoid taking anyone with you to your appointment whenever possible. All prenatal appointments, and immunization appointments for children up to age 11 will be scheduled for an in-person visit. For the safety of our patients, Tri-County Health Centers have updated our sanitation, distancing, and safety procedures to minimize the spread of COVID-19.
If you are experiencing fever, cough, shortness of breath, or flu like symptoms, please stay home. Our providers and nurses can provide medical advice over the phone. Contact us at 401-519-1940.
Dental & Oral Health providers are available for dental matters. If you are experiencing a dental concern, please contact us at 401-519-1940 to speak with a dental provider. In-person dental appointments are being accepted.
