During the height of the COVID-19 outbreak, the People’s Health Clinic was treating almost all of their patients remotely.  

The situation is changing.   But Clinic Director Beth Armstrong says that from now on, tele-medicine will likely always be a part of their toolbox.  

Armstrong said that some weeks ago, they were treating nearly 90 percent of their patients on tele-health calls.        

“Of course, we still had to see our pre-natal patients.   And we also had to prioritize the in-person Newborn care and  Newborn Well visit.”

People's Health Clinic

The People’s Health Clinic is being impacted by the coronavirus outbreak.    But representatives of the Clinic say they’re not the place to go for someone seeking to be tested.

The Clinic, which serves the uninsured in Summit and Wasatch Counties, has seen a three-fold increase in their walk-in traffic, according to the Clinic’s Executive Director Beth Armstrong.

But if someone shows up at the door, thinking they have symptoms of COVID-19, testing isn’t what the Clinic offers.

In a special Monday noon broadcast, KPCW News Director Leslie Thatcher gets an update on the COVID-19 public health emergency from Summit County Health Director Rich Bullough.  Then she talks to Beth Armstrong, Executive Director of the People's Health Clinic, Rob Harter, Executive Director at Christian Center of Park City, and Katie Wright, Executive Director of Park City Community Foundation about how their organizations are helping the community and what citizens can do to help.

There are many misunderstandings around COVID-19, but even more, many medical challenges facing health profesionals. 
Rachelle Flinn, Physician's Assistant and Clinical Services Manager with the People's Health Clinic joins us to answer some of the tough questions surrounding the Corona Virus: The medical challenges, what is known about the infections, and plans to face the crisis.

People's Health Clinic

The People’s Health Clinic has announced they have  a new Medical Director.    As it turns out, he’s a familiar face—Dr. John Hanrahan, the former Medical Director and a co-founder of the Health Clinic some 20 years ago.   

Hanrahan announced last winter  that he was leaving the Clinic,  which provides medical treatment for the uninsured, though he would still work there as a volunteer.

He said then he was undertaking a new position with Utah Rotary.   But the situation with that  job changed.

The People’s Health Clinic was named as one of three Community Health Heroes from more than a thousand submissions made from across the country. 

This year, for the first time ever, Reader’s Digest magazine launched a health-focused extension of a program it runs in partnership with Life Extension Magazine. The Community Health Heroes search was to find those American “heroes” who are committed to supporting and inspiring their communities to live healthier lives.

The Park City Community Foundation earlier this week announced the recipient of its Women’s Giving Fund high-impact grant.

The $35,000 grant is going to the People’s Health Clinic, good news for an organization entering its 20th year.

Katie Wright, from the Foundation, said that in 2013 they planned to get $1,000 donations each from 1,000 people. That one-million-dollar endowment would go towards the needs of women and children.

Wright said this week’s announcement is their 5th grant.

The Providers

The People’s Health Clinic and Park City Film Series are offering a free screening of the film “The Providers” Thursday evening.

“The Providers” will be presented at the Jim Santy Auditorium Thursday evening at 7:00 pm. Development Director Aimee Armer and Executive Director Beth Armstrong of the People’s Health Clinic introduce the four-person panel which will follow the film.

Tanger Outlets of Park City is once again offering shoppers great savings, as part of an effort to end breast cancer, during the annual Pink Style campaign in October.

Locally the funds go to help out the Peoples Health Clinic.

The director of the Peoples Health Clinic, Beth Armstrong, said they’ve been working with Tanger for three years.
