Henry J. Austin Health Center is offering new services to help all of their patients stay home to stop the spread of COVID-19. Pharmacy delivery and telemedicine are now available for new and current patients. Telemedicine is any type of visit with a provider that takes place remotely with telephone or video services. The health center is currently not providing in-office visits besides services that cannot be done remotely. To make a telemedicine appointment, call 609-278-5900 or to set up medication delivery call 609-278-5931.

The health center also makes telemedicine available for those who do not have internet or phone access. Once an appointment is made, patients may go to the 321 N. Warren St., Trenton, NJ location and they will be escorted to a room where the telemedicine appointment will take place.

“I am overjoyed that we are now able to offer these life changing services and allow our patients to stay home during this pandemic,” said Dr. Kemi Alli, Chief Executive Officer of Henry J. Austin Health Center. “We care so much about all of our patients and we want to keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible during this time. You can still receive the care you need without having to leave your house.”

“Our current wait time to talk to a call center representative is five minutes and we will connect you with a provider even if you do not have documents or if you cannot pay for your visit. We care so much about the Trenton community and are here for you no matter what,” said Dr. Rachel Evans, Chief Medical Officer of Henry J. Austin Health Center. “We will never share any information you provide us with anyone.”

During this time the Henry J. Austin Health Center Pharmacy remains open, but it is encouraging patients to set up delivery service to stop the spread of COVID-19. All other services like behavioral health, nutrition, and dental offered by the health center are available through telemedicine; so there is no need to worry about having your normal provider appointment cancelled. Anyone can see and speak to a Henry J. Austin Health Center provider while in the comfort of their home.

To make a telemedicine visit please call 609-278-5900 and 609-278-5931 to set up medication delivery.
