LOWVILLE- A lack of clinical coverage is the reasoning behind the soon to be pause of the extended hours clinic at Lewis County Health System.

According to an announcement from authorities, the extended hours clinic, which is hosted at the main hospital campus in Lowville, will have services suspended starting Friday, May 7.

“We will be temporarily re-allocating all staff and resources to our other clinics,” said Chief Medical Officer of Employed Practices Sean Harney, MD.

Officials say any patients in need of emergent care can visit the emergency department. For non-emergent care, residents are encouraged to seek care from their health provider.

All other primary care clinics and health system community-based health centers offer same day appointments, officials clarified.

Furthermore, Copenhagen Health Center, which is aimed to re-open later in May, will also take walk-in patients.

For residents that do not have a primary care provider, Beaver River, Copenhagen, Harrisville, South Lewis, Lewis County Family Practice, and Lewis County Internal Medicine (Dr. Vora) are welcoming new patients.

Call 315-376-5086 or visit Lewis County Health System’s website for more details.
