Newport Health Center will be closed until March 31
The center is expected to reopen March 31. The center’s health care providers have temporarily relocated to New London Hospital where patient visits are taking place until March 28.
“The good news is we’ve been able to provide services. Our patients have been really understanding and flexible,” Zurheide said. “It doesn’t mean that no one has been inconvenienced, but I think internally and in the community there has been a lot of collaboration.”
“There was an ice jam on the roof and they were removing that and the water ended up coming inside. There were several blockages in the drain,” Lym-Morison said. “The staff were really quick to get records out of the way so no patients records were damaged in the event.”
Some staff remains at the Newport Health Center, but most have been relocated to New London Hospital where the Newport center’s number has been forwarded to a temporary call center.
Shuttle service from the Newport Health Center to Newport Hospital is also available for patients.
