In response to the coronavirus disease COVID-19 causing a significant drop in patient visits, physical medicine, blood draw, diagnostic imaging departments at the Day Kimball Healthcare (DKH) Center in Plainfield will temporarily suspend services effective immediately until further notice.
“The decision to temporarily suspend ancillary services at the Plainfield Healthcare Center is part of our overall planning and response to the coronavirus outbreak,” said Joseph Adiletta, interim president, Day Kimball Healthcare. “We want to emphasize that patients who would normally access care at this location will continue to have various options to receive DKH care.”
Patients who would visit the Plainfield Physical Medicine Office located at 31 Dow Road, can continue to receive physical, occupation, or speech language therapy services at the Day Kimball Healthcare Centers in Danielson or Putnam.
The Danielson Physical Medicine Office is located at 55 Green Hollow Road and is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The Putnam Physical Medicine Office, located at 12 South Main Street is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Patients who would visit the Plainfield Healthcare Center for blood draw or diagnostic imaging services, including x-rays, mammography, bone density, and ultrasound exams, can access these services through the Danielson Diagnostic Center located at 55 Green Hollow Road. Hours of operation for the Danielson Diagnostic Center are Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Other services available at the Day Kimball Healthcare Center in Plainfield will remain open, for now, including internal medicine, OB/GYN, and pediatrics.
DKH recommends that anyone who develops a fever, cough or difficulty breathing should contact their primary care provider before visiting any healthcare location.
“We are greatly appreciative for the flexibility and understanding of our community during this challenging time. We will continue to monitor the situation and we look forward to resuming ancillary services at our Plainfield Healthcare Center after the coronavirus crisis has passed,” said Adiletta.
