COVID-19 Update May 14, 2020:
To keep the our patients, our staff, and our community as safe as possible, we are now seeing patients with upper respiratory and flu-like symptoms in our outdoor Medical Mobile Unit Monday through Thursday, 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 pm and Friday 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. in Kennett Square. If our provider’s recommendation is to get tested for COVID-19, our patients can now complete the testing in our Mobile Unit instead of having to get rerouted to another testing site in the county. Tests are at no cost. This is important care coordination for our current members. For the greater public interested in COVID-19 testing, the recommendation from the health department is still to first reach out to your primary care provider on next steps. Don’t have a PCP? We can help you establish care at LCH as a new patient.
Now at LCH: Telehealth for primary care, pediatrics, dental, behavioral health, and women’s health visits. Watch our LCH Telehealth 101 video and our step by step guide for a scheduled Telehealth appointment.
LCH will be providing acute visits only at this time. These acute visits will be for children, adolescent, and adult patients (including new patients) who have symptoms like: fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose; shortness of breath; chest pain; asthma attack; recent abdominal, back, joint pain or swelling; minor injuries, strains, sprains; minor acute procedures; wound checks; rashes/hives, tick bites, and allergic reactions; problems urinating; or any health related concerns. Patients under the age of 2 years old will still be seen for their well child visits. Routine primary care and pediatrics visits are being rescheduled.
Our Dental Center can now see patients for urgent care in addition to dental emergencies (dental pain, broken teeth, abscess or facial swelling, third molar pain (wisdom teeth), dental trauma due to injury, any fillings that are lost or broken and causing pain, and bleeding). Urgent care includes things like lost fillings, tooth extractions—procedures that don’t require a drill but could potentially cause pain or infection if left untreated. We will look a little different, with our extra gowns and masks. Our team will walk you through everything you need to prepare for your visit, like wearing a mask in the office. We are accepting new patients who have an urgent need or emergency. We look forward to opening our doors even further in the near future.
Our Women’s Health Center (OBGYN) remains open for prenatal care and patients with women’s health concerns.
Social Assistance visits are now taking place over the phone only.
Call us immediately if:
- You have fever, cough, or shortness of breath.
- You have been in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19.
For your safety...
Safety is our number one goal for our patients and our community. At this time, we ask that you please come alone to your appointment. Patients who require additional assistance, such as children, patients with special needs, or elderly patients, can come to their appointments with one support person. Please note that every person who comes in to an LCH facility will have their temperature checked and be asked to wear a mask upon arrival. Thank you for your continued understanding as we work together to fight COVID-19.

I was homeless and hopeless. LCH saved my life. They gave me the care I needed to begin to manage my diabetes and depression. And they guided me through the system to help me find a stable home.
I was in and out of health insurance coverage for a number of years, and really struggling to find work that could pay for my mortgage and my living expenses. No matter what my situation, LCH saw me and took care of me.
I have been going to LCH for almost fifteen years. I am so happy with the growth of LCH. Now they can help even more people.
