In a vigilant effort to protect you, our staff and our community from the coronavirus epidemic, we are implementing social distancing procedures in how we are conducting our services.
If you need a refill or to pick up a prescription please park in designated Pharmacy Pickup Parking and call 918.492.2554 and someone will come out to serve you.
The CALM Center:
Our youth crisis stabilization center for ages 10 – 17 is open but will also be implementing social distancing procedures. Limited family visitations will be in place and every person entering the CALM Center will have their temperature checked. Anyone with a fever will not be allowed into the Center.
We know that this situation can change quickly, and we are closely monitoring the situation. If there are new developments or recommendations, we will take action and/or precautionary measures. We will keep you updated if changes occur to our services or at our facilities.
