MMH Sets Up Second Alternate Care Site For Ill Patients

This site's purpose is to provide care for ill patients who need to be seen, but should not be seen at the normal practice. 

(Batesville, Ind.) - Margaret Mary Health has set up a second Acute Care Extension Site at the Orthopaedic and Specialty Center located on State Route 129 to continue to improve access to care during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

This site's purpose is to provide care for ill patients who need to be seen, but should not be seen at the normal practice. 

Patients could be offered a face-to-face visit with a MMH provider, MMH nurse-supported telehealth visit with a MMH provider, or a telehealth visit directly with an MMH provider from the patient’s home.

The Acute Care Extension Site at Batesville Primary School will continue services for patients suffering COVID-19 symptoms such as fever and respiratory issues, including coughing, wheezing or shortness of breath.

Both Acute Care Extension Sites will help continue Margaret Mary’s efforts to minimize exposure and risk of transmission of viral infections to healthy patients receiving routine care in our provider offices.

Only a limited number of appointments will be available each day at both locations.

Contact your primary care provider or call (812) 933-5556 to set up an appointment. MMH providers will help set up the appropriate visit type and location for your care.

MMH podiatry practice, formerly located in the Orthopaedic and Specialty Center, has been temporarily moved to the Outpatient and Cancer Center located on Six Pine Ranch Road.

Patients with upcoming appointments have been notified of this transition.
