Virtual Medical Visits 24/7 Free of Charge for Wiregrass Residents Impacted by Hurricane Michael Flowers Hospital and Flowers Medical Group Offers Hurricane Relief Telehealth Visits with Virtual Health Connect Available Through 11:59 P.M. on October 15, 2018 Dothan, Ala.
(October 11, 2018)– As our community begins recovery from Hurricane Michael, Flowers Hospital and Flowers Medical Group is offering free telehealth visits on Virtual Health Connect to help area residents impacted by the storm get non-emergency medical care. The free telehealth visits are available through 11:59 p.m. on Monday, October 15, 2018 on any mobile device, computer or tablet. Virtual Health Connect provides on-demand, live access to physicians and nurse practitioners at any time and may be particularly helpful as members of the community are coping with the impact of rain, winds and flooding.
Clinicians can help counsel individuals and families in their time of need with this quick and convenient program. “In the aftermath of the storm, we understand that many physician practices are closed and traveling to your physician’s office or an urgent care clinic might be difficult,” said Heath Phillips, Flowers Hospital chief executive officer. “Making it more convenient to talk with a clinician about your or your loved ones’ medical needs is one way we can lend a hand to those who’ve been impacted by the storm.” Access your free virtual visit by downloading the VirtualHealthConnect app from the App Store or Google Play or by visiting VirtualHealthConnect.com.
At the time of the visit, patients can enter coupon code MICHAEL to have their visit free of charge. If you are experiencing a life-threatening medical emergency, please call 9-1-1. Virtual Health Connect is intended for patients who have an urgent need to see a physician for minor health concerns like sinus problems, fever, ear infections, cold and flu symptoms, allergies, migraines, stomach pain, and much more.
The doctor will evaluate and diagnose the patient, and if feasible and appropriate, send prescriptions to the pharmacy—just like an in-office doctor’s appointment.
