Local Clinics Announce New COVID-19 Clinic Hours
March 19, 2020 – Now that the Texas Panhandle has had positive COVID-19 cases, the Perryton Health Center, the DeWitt Family Practice, Family Health Center and the Childers-Siewert Clinic want to help patients stay healthy while also making sure usual health needs are met.
As of March 23, 2020, local health clinics will be implementing the following schedule:
Well Visits (no cough or cold symptoms): From 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Break: From 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. Note: The clinics will be closed to patients so our Custodial Department can sanitize the facilities. Someone will be available to answer phones and make appointments during this time.
All Other Visits: From 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Note: All sick patients will be seen, but will also be screened according to COVID – 19 protocol
Sick patients need to consider their exposures. If you have been traveling to an area where there are COVID – 19 cases (or have had close contact with someone who has COVID 19) and you develop a fever, cough, or shortness of breath, please call your primary care physician before you physically come to the clinics. A provider will call you right away and next steps will be determined. We would like to keep these cases at home as much as possible while we continue to treat other routine illnesses.
Thank you from your local medical staff,
Perryton Health Center – 806-435-7224
DeWitt Family Practice – 806-648-9355
Family Health Center – 806-435-7154

“Rest assured that when you come in during “well” times that your local providers will conduct your visits timely and efficiently to get you back home. If there are needs that may not need a visit - maybe just a medication refill for example - simply call and we will do our best to meet your needs.
Remember “social distancing” should be taken seriously. We need to slow the spread of this inevitable virus and not overwhelm the country’s resources and your healthcare system. Stay home! Do only what is necessary in public!
Your local providers have faith in the government decisions as well as the CDC recommendations and we urge you to as well! We will get through this together.”
