Day Kimball Plainfield Healthcare Center to Reopen Blood Draw Services

June 17, 2020

Screening Procedures and Visitation Restrictions Continue

Day Kimball Healthcare (DKH) is re-opening its blood draw site at its Plainfield Healthcare Center, located at 12 Lathrop Road in Plainfield, for patients requiring laboratory and blood draw services.

Effective Monday, June 22, the blood draw site at DKH’s Plainfield Healthcare Center will resume to normal business hours, and will be open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and on Saturdays from 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

“Day Kimball has been cautiously and safely resuming select services across our locations for the past several weeks,” said Dr. John Graham, chief medical officer and vice president of quality and medical affairs, Day Kimball Healthcare. “Now is the time for patients to get caught up on their health, and that includes blood-work and laboratory services. We are pleased to be able to safely offer these services again for people who live in or nearby to Plainfield,” he said.

“While patient safety has always been our number one priority, we’ve taken extra safety precautions to provide the safest care possible during this time,” said Graham. “We will continue to screen people upon arrival, ask them a few health questions and check their temperature, and provide them with a mask. Further, we are continuing to limit visitors with a few exceptions, and maintaining with social distancing protocols. Hand sanitizer is readily available throughout all of our sites,” he said.

Other services available at the Day Kimball Healthcare Center in Plainfield have remained open including internal medicine, OB/GYN, and pediatrics.

Patients can access physical, occupational, or speech language therapy services at the DKH Healthcare Center in Danielson, located at 55 Green Hollow Road, and at the DKH Healthcare Center in Putnam, located at 12 South Main Street. Both locations are open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Patients can access diagnostic imaging services, including x-rays and mammography, at the DKH Healthcare Center in Danielson, also located at 55 Green Hollow Road, Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

DKH recommends that anyone who develops a fever, cough or difficulty breathing should contact their primary care provider before visiting any healthcare location.

Since the beginning of the outbreak, the incidence of COVID-19 in Windham County has been the lowest in Connecticut, with only 5 hospitalizations at Day Kimball Hospital. For more information and guidelines about returning to care at Day Kimball Healthcare, visit daykimball.org/return-to-care.
