Penn State Health temporarily closing some sites, consolidating physicians; Schoolhouse Road location open
Penn State Health Medical Group is consolidating a number of its physician practices across the region and plans to close others until further notice in response to the evolving coronavirus pandemic.
In many cases, patients will be redirected to other clinic sites, and medical group staff are contacting those who are affected.
The Penn State Health Medical Group location at 3100 Schoolhouse Road in Londonderry Township remains open, according to the website.
Physicians and staff at closed or consolidated sites are being redeployed to other locations, with some physicians serving to provide remote consultation for patients with respiratory and other symptoms through the Penn State Health OnDemand telehealth platform, according to a press release Sunday.
A significant number of patients have begun to cancel regular check-ups and other scheduled appointments at many of these sites, Penn State Health said. “This decrease in patient volume, combined with a desire to preserve medical supplies for an anticipated increase in patients with respiratory symptoms that could be related to COVID-19, are among the reasons for the temporary consolidations,” according to the release.
Details on clinic closures can be found on Penn State Health’s website through the Find a Location section.
