While many businesses and services have temporarily shut down in response to the “Safer at Home” order issued by Los Angeles County, the Samuel Dixon Family Health Center remains open amid the coronavirus outbreak.
All three of the health centers run by the Samuel Dixon Family Health Center (SDFHC), located in Val Verde, Canyon Country, and Newhall, have “made the necessary changes to their daily operations in order to protect the well-being of patients, guests and office personnel in order to reduce the spread of the coronavirus,” according to health center officials.
“In addition to the precautionary measures we’ve taken to comply with the CDC recommendations, we also offer telephone encounters for the types of visits our healthcare providers deem appropriate, further reducing unnecessary personal exposure so our patients remain safe and our healthcare providers remain healthy so that they can continue the necessary work our community needs during this unprecedented time,” said Philip Solomon, CEO of SDFHC. “We are also encouraging our patients who are feeling ill to call us instead of coming into the health center so that we can provide an assessment and recommend the appropriate care.”
The center’s Behavioral Health department remains open and is available for support, but has made changes to how services are being delivered by providing counseling sessions and support groups over the phone and through video conferencing.
However, the center’s dental program is closed at this time until further notice in compliance with ADA recommendations.
