Hours: Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

San Juan Health Partners wants to remind our patients not to delay their care. The doors to our clinics are unlocked and open. There is no longer a need to call ahead before you come in. We welcome you to come right in to check in for your appointment and continue your routine care.

We are offering in-person visits in our clinics as well as virtual visits when necessary. Patient and caregiver safety will continue to be our main focus, with the rigorous COVID-safe practices we’ve developed over the past year continuing. When you arrive for your appointment we will continue our screening process. Everyone who enters our buildings is respectfully asked to wear masks (please, no exhalation valves) and practice proper hand hygiene. We are complying with social distancing by providing designated seating in our waiting areas and we are escorting patients to private rooms as soon as possible to mitigate excess waiting.
