Community invited to tour telehealth booths
UNC Health Southeastern will host tours for telehealth booths available for use by individuals who would like to utilize telehealth visits but do not have adequate internet access at home or through their mobile device.
Tours will be held on Wednesday, June 16 from 2 to 4 p.m. at Mohr Plaza located at 400 Martin Luther King, Jr., Drive, Lumberton; Wednesday, June 23 from 10 a.m. to noon at Maxton Medicine Shoppe located at 102 N. Patterson Street, Maxton; and Thursday, June 24 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at UNC Health Southeastern’s Community Health Education Center, also known as C.H.E.C., located within Biggs Park Mall in Lumberton.
The booth at C.H.E.C. has been operational since March 1; the booths at Mohr Plaza and Maxton Medicine Shoppe are newly opened. Telehealth booths are being placed around Robeson County as part of a “Fill the Gap” grant from North Carolina Healthcare Foundation as well as a NC COVID-19 Hospital Preparedness Program grant, also from the North Carolina Healthcare Foundation. Additional telehealth booths are planned for placement by the end of the year.
New and established patients who wish to use the booth may call the UNC Health Southeastern Contact Center at 1-844-735-8864 to schedule an appointment with available primary care providers each location’s operating hours.
Individuals interested in signing up for a MyChart account and organizations that would like to be considered as a telehealth booth host site may call (910) 734-3657 for more information.
