COVID19                     

In an abundance of caution amidst the growing outbreak of coronavirus, Health Foundations is taking steps to limit sick and exposed people’s contact with other patients and our staff through new, temporary guidelines regarding who is allowed to enter the clinic.

While these might seem like extreme measures, this is for the safety of all patients and our staff. Our staff is small and susceptible to an outbreak if someone with coronavirus enters the clinic (particularly children who may be carriers but not show any symptoms). Our goal is to continue providing care throughout this pandemic. To do so successfully, sick people cannot come to the clinic.

Clinic Visits:


At this time, we are requiring only patients enter the clinic for appointments

  • Children (with exception of infants in arms) and family members are not to accompany patients inside the building.

  • Please wear a mask, scarf, bandana, etc

  • Upon entering you will be asked to wash your hands.

  • You will be asked a series of screening questions at each visit when you enter the building.

  • Please practice social distancing with each other and our staff.

  • Please avoid touching surfaces.

  • Prenatal care will be conducted both on site and/or via a virtual platform (i.e. Face Time, WhatsApp.) MW will triage patient the day before their on-site appointment, asking and answering all pertinent questions. Triage appt will be held via virtual Platform and charted. On-site appt will be strictly to check vital signs, urine, weight check, labs, and FHT.  Your midwife will discuss this with you further.
