TELEHEALTH: Huggins can care for you from the comfort of your home
As the spread of COVID-19 continues throughout our communities, Huggins Hospital is making it easier and safer for you to receive the medical care you need. Huggins Hospital now offers access to care via telehealth, a remote delivery of healthcare services or information using various technologies. Telehealth visits – either by video or telephone – allow your Huggins Hospital provider to check in on your symptoms, adjust medications and modify treatment plans as needed. Simply call your Huggins Hospital primary care office to request a telehealth appointment. If you need a primary care provider, you can call Huggins Hospital’s PATH specialists at (603) 569-7669 and they will help you establish care with one of the local offices – locations in Alton, Moultonborough, Ossipee, Tamworth and Wolfeboro – to access the telehealth service options.
Telehealth visits are available for primary care and pediatrics, as well as a broad range of specialty care services including physical and occupational therapy, speech therapy, orthopedics, general surgery, women’s health, counseling services and more.
What technology you need for a telehealth visit
Many laptops, tablets and smartphones are already equipped with everything you will need for your telehealth visit. To ensure a successful telehealth visit, you will need a device with a webcam or video accessibility and speakers. You will also need a secure internet connection. You should utilize a well-lit, quiet environment. Huggins Hospital office staff will connect with you prior to your visit to make sure your virtual technology set-up or telephone will support your appointment.
Your healthcare providers at Huggins Hospital want to make sure you are still getting the care you need. If you do not feel well or are in need of a check-up, please reach out to us so we can find the best option for you to get care.
