Margaret Mary Health Sets Up Second Alternate Care Site for Ill Patients
To continue to improve access to care during this pandemic and further separate MMH’s ill patients from its healthy patients, MMH has established a second Acute Care Extension Site at the Orthopaedic and Specialty Center located on State Route 129. This site has been set up to provide care for ill patients, who need to be seen, but for the safety of other patients and staff, should not be seen at the normal practice. Patients may be offered a face-to-face visit with an MMH provider, an MMH nurse-supported telehealth visit with an MMH provider or a telehealth visit directly with an MMH provider from the patient’s home.
The Acute Care Extension Site at Batesville Primary School will continue to see patients with COVID-19-like symptoms such as fever and respiratory issues, including coughing, wheezing or shortness of breath. Both Acute Care Extension Sites will help continue Margaret Mary’s efforts to minimize exposure and risk of transmission of viral infections to healthy patients receiving routine care in our provider offices. A limited number of appointments are available each day at both locations. For an appointment, contact your primary care provider or call 812.933.5556 and they will help set up the appropriate visit type and location for your care.
Our podiatry practice, formerly located in the Orthopaedic and Specialty Center, has temporarily been moved to the Outpatient and Cancer Center located on Six Pine Ranch Road. Patients with upcoming appointments have been notified of this transition.
