PORT Health continues to strive to meet the needs of our patients through this difficult time. Even though COVID is still a threat, we are now giving our patients the option to have their appointments face to face with their provider. The option for remote appointments remains, however, if you prefer to be seen in the office, you are welcome to come in. Please note that you will be required to wear a face-covering that covers the mouth and nose, maintain social distancing and your temperature will be taken as you enter. Please call ahead of your appointment and let us know which option you choose. Emergency walk-in patients will also be seen face to face if so desired.
PORT Health is honored to be receiving drug destruction resources from The AmerisourceBergen Foundation. We are excited to begin implementing these kits within our communities.
Our primary goal is to remove unused and misused medications from communities to reduce social vulnerabilities associated with opioids.
In December 2017, the Foundation launched a program to provide communities with a safe solution for site-of-use disposal of opioids. Specifically, we are offering free disposable resources, like deactivation pouches and products, to deactivate unused or expired prescription medication in a safe and effective manner. We have worked with organizations across the U.S. to distribute these resources, and the program is ongoing. For more information about the program, please see the AmerisourceBergen Foundation.
