Seeking to better meet patient needs during the COVID-19 pandemic, Chase Brexton Health Care has established a COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund which will help the community health center maintain patient screening and testing efforts and build its telehealth capability.

Chase Brexton and community health centers are a critical component of the nation’s health care system, relieving pressure on hospital emergency rooms by providing screening, testing, and care for mild COVID-19 cases. At the same time, Chase Brexton continues to honor its decades-long commitment to welcoming, comprehensive health care by launching telehealth appointments to both primary care and behavioral health patients.
