Coronavirus Reopening-Prioritize Your Health, Resume Regular Check-Ups

The COVID-19 surge has passed through NY and as our communities re-open, now is the time to prioritize your health and resume regular check-ups.

Reports show that avoiding hospitals and doctor’s offices can have detrimental long-term effects. To make sure everyone is comfortable and is seeking the healthcare services they need, Montefiore has launched the following services to help our communities.

1. Created a hotline (833-311-SAFE (833-311-7233)) and website (https://covidsafecare.montefiore.org/covid-safe) so people can ask questions and receive the most    appropriate care going forward – whether it’s in-person or via a telemedicine visit.

2. Launched a follow-up clinic, the COVID-19 Recovery Clinic (CORE) for people who have recovered from COVID-19, but are experiencing new or lingering symptoms.

CORE offers in-office and telemedicine visits connecting patients to a team of experts who can address their physical, cognitive, social and emotional needs.

The goal of the new service is to help reduce symptoms and improve overall quality of life.

For more information, call 844-556-6683, extension #36.
