RHHD TO PAUSE CLINICAL SERVICES AT SOUTHWOOD RESOURCE CENTER
RICHMOND, VA- Richmond and Henrico Health Districts (RHHD) are pausing clinical services at Southwood Resource Center and are rescheduling patients due to some maintenance issues at the site. Services operating out of the Southwood Poolhouse (COVID-19 testing and vaccinations and community outreach) will continue as scheduled.
RHHD called patients with appointments to reschedule them for another time or location and is working with property management to resolve the issue.
“This is an emerging and evolving situation,” explained Margo Webb, Director of Community Programs. “Our clinical and community teams remain dedicated to serving the health needs of Southwood residents and are exploring options to prevent a gap in services.”
Southwood Resource Center has offered chronic disease screening, cervical and breast exams, family planning services, and STI screening to the Southwood community since 2018.
