Rural Health Appointments Continue Despite Storm Damage to Phones, Internet


Eastern Shore Rural Health has announced that the storms that caused damage last Friday have interfered with its telephone and internet systems — but appointments are continuing as scheduled.

“Our team is working to resolve the issue,” said Digital Marketing Associate Caroline Williamson of Rural Health. “However, there are still intermittent issues in our health center locations.”

Patients with scheduled appointments are asked to arrive 15 minutes early to register.

Existing patients who do not have appointments but need advice, assistance, or a prescription refill, or need to be seen, should come to their health center.

People experiencing a medical emergency should visit the emergency room or dial 9-1-1.

“Thank you for your patience while we work to fully restore service, and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause,” said Williamson.
