Providers at Summit Pacific have begun offering virtual care options for their patients.
These virtual visits are scheduled medical consultations teleconferenced between a patient and a provider.
The first virtual visits were rolled out last week as a part of Summit Pacific’s response efforts to COVID-19.
Summit Pacific has begun contacting some patients and offering this virtual visit option for certain types of visits. Patients can also schedule a virtual visit and should not neglect their own health needs, nor assume that Summit Pacific providers are unavailable.
Patients who may be interested in a virtual visit should call 360-346-2222 for more information, or to schedule a virtual visit.
To have a successful visit, all a patient needs is the ability to connect via a smartphone, tablet or computer with camera and the ability to download Zoom, or use FaceTime on iPhone, or Google Duo on Android.
Patients should consider virtual visits for routine visits, follow-up appointments, or for minor illnesses. Virtual visits are not for urgent or life-threatening situations; those patients should call 911 or go to the Emergency Department.
Individuals who have medical questions about their health, related to COVID-19, should call Summit Pacific Respiratory Care Unit’s nurse triage line at 360-346-2222.
