Wentworth-Douglass Hospital Opens Community COVID-19 Hotline and Respiratory Illness Clinics

Wentworth-Douglass Hospital has opened a Wentworth-Douglass Hospital COVID-19 Community Hotline to serve community members who have symptoms of COVID-19 or have general COVID-19 questions. The Community Hotline is accessible by calling (603) 609-6000, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Depending on the severity of symptoms, the Hotline nurses may direct patients to Wentworth-Douglass Hospital Respiratory Illness Clinics. Wentworth-Douglass has opened two Respiratory Illness Clinics located outside of the hospital’s Emergency Department at 789 Central Avenue and the Wentworth-Douglass Professional Building at 10 Members Way in Dover.       

The clinics are meant for patients experiencing moderate COVID-19 symptoms, such as coughing, fever (above 100.4), chills, and a general feeling of malaise or fatigue that prevents you from getting out of bed or off the couch. Those at high-risk for COVID-19 include those who are age 70 or older, with severe lung disease (asthma, bronchiectasis, cystic fibrosis, COPD, emphysema, etc.), severe heart disease, or on dialysis, and more.

The Respiratory Illness Clinic located at 10 Members Way is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. The Respiratory Clinic outside of the Emergency Department is open Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. 

Patients who are experiencing a medical emergency should always call 9-1-1.

Wentworth-Douglass Hospital reminds the community that we can all do our part to help slow the spread of transmission by practicing good public health habits including maintaining social distance, washing hands frequently, and staying home if you are sick.
