In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have equipped our partner hospitals with telehealth capabilities.
You can now receive a FREE TELEHEALTH SCREENING from your trusted community provider at these partner facilities:
To get your free COVID-19 telehealth screening, call our toll free number. You will speak with a triage nurse, who will gather some information from you and help you complete step 2 of the process.
**If you or your loved one are experiencing
emergency symptoms call 911.
Choose how you would like to receive your free telehealth screening.
If your screening with our triage nurse indicates you may have been exposed to or you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, you will receive a text message or email with a link to start the telehealth session with your trusted provider.
If you’re unsure whether or not you need a telehealth session with your local provider, the CDC has created a tool to evaluate your symptoms, their severity, and your risk factors to provide guidance on how to handle your possible illness. You can utilize the CDC’s coronavirus (COVID-19) self-checker by clicking below and selecting “Coronanavirus Self-Checker” on the page that appears.
The COVID-19 virus has obviously created a sense of alarm and concern. It seems there is new information being presented almost hourly. At Cohesive, the health of all our patients, employees, and the communities we serve is our primary concern. In addition, we must be diligent to anticipate and respond to downstream financial issues associated with the crisis. The paper-thin margins of a rural hospital can ill afford any disruption. Currently, we are considering scenarios ranging from a period of extremely limited patient activity because of positive exposure to being overrun with patients but having limited access to staff and or equipment. We must be prepared for those extremes and all possibilities in between.
Cohesive has formed a task force which is in regular contact with the CDC and the Oklahoma State Department of Health. Additionally, each of our hospitals has formed a coronavirus committee, and we are all regularly sharing ideas, concerns, and all other relevant information. While we should anticipate tremendous challenges, please know that, between Cohesive and all our hospitals, we have a team of incredibly dedicated individuals working to ensure great patient care and financial viability.
