Greenfield, IN (March 19, 2020)— Hancock Health has opened a dedicated COVID-19 triage center, Hancock Triage, with appointments available by referral only. Hancock County residents who are experiencing symptoms or have questions are encouraged to call the COVID-19 hotline, open 24 hours a day, seven days a week at (317) 325-COVD. Anyone with symptoms will be sent to Hancock Triage for COVID-19 evaluation.
“At Hancock Health, we recognize that this is a fluid situation and that we must make every effort to meet the needs of our patients and communities,” said Steve Long, President & CEO, Hancock Health and Regional Hospital. “These tools will help us empower the community with the knowledge they need to make informed decisions to keep themselves and their families healthy while helping to minimize the potential spread.”
Appointments at the triage center are only available through the hotline or with a referral from Hancock Physician Network.
