HealthWise

As we continue to monitor the ever changing landscape during this pandemic, Stormont Vail Health is committed to doing everything we can to ensure the health and safety of our patients, visitors and staff. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), adults 60 and older and those with an underlying health condition or a compromised immune system are at greater risk of becoming very sick from COVID-19. In light of these facts, Stormont Vail has permanently closed its HealthWise office and is suspending all HealthWise outreach programs indefinitely.

This includes:

  • HealthWise Senior Suppers
  • HealthWise Exercise Classes
  • Stepping on Fall Prevention Program
  • Nutrition Clinics (discontinued)
  • *SHICK Counseling (discontinued)

(*For information about SHICK services, please contact Jayhawk Area Agency on Aging at (785) 235-1367 or Kansas Department of Aging at (785) 296-4986.)

Anyone needing immunizations please contact our Retail Pharmacy at (785) 235-8796 to schedule an appointment. Retail Pharmacy will also be the contact for medication counseling services.

If you have questions regarding these changes or where you can go to receive services, please contact our Health Connections at (785) 354-5225.

As we move forward, our lifestyle will change drastically for an extended period of time in order to level off the spread of the virus and to keep our health care system from being overwhelmed. Stormont Vail remains committed to our dedicated HealthWise members and look forward to resuming these programs and services once we can ensure everyone’s safety.

 

Thank you for your understanding.
