June 04 2014 - Press Release

 

Ammonoosuc Community Health Services (ACHS) is pleased to announce it has extended hours at its Woodsville site providing additional access to patients on Thursday and Friday evenings until 8 pm.

These extended hours are covered by a nurse practitioner and are not meant to replace your primary care doctor. If a patient has a condition that needs to be looked at right away but isn't a true emergency - and it's after 5 pm, they can most likely be seen right away.

ACHS-Woodsville is providing convenient medical evaluation and treatment of simple health problems during these extended hours. The attending family nurse practitioner can diagnose and treat common illnesses and infections; treat minor wounds, cuts, abrasions, sprains and skin conditions; provide wellness services including sports and DOT physicals; and offer some routine lab tests for chronic conditions.

ACHS patients can be seen for the following types of issues during these extended hours: coughs, sore throats, minor fevers and colds, minor burns and cuts, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, eye irritations and ear aches, minor allergic reactions, headaches, animal bites, vaccines, rashes and stitches.

Patients who present themselves during these hours with more severe medical issues may be referred to another care setting. If you have a medical emergency or require immediate assistance due to an accident or injury, please call 911.

Call ACHS-Woodsville at 603-747-3740 to be seen during these extended hours: Thursday and Friday until 8 pm.
