Making health Care More Accessible
In response to the COVID19 pandemic, Goodwin Community Health is changing the way we stay in touch with our patients. In order to keep our staff and patients safe and healthy, we are now providing many types of visits by video or phone.
Telehealth visits are open to all patients and are strongly recommended for patients who are over age 60, or over age 50 with a chronic health condition.
Scroll down to learn more about what telehealth is and how it works. You can also learn about our remote Recovery, Home Visiting, WIC and CSFP services.
If you are not currently a patient at Goodwin Community Health, please visit this page before scheduling your telehealth visit.
If you are currently a medical patient but have never used our dental services before, please visit this page.
Patients usnig our Telehealth Services will need to complete our Telehealth Informed Consent form.
Telehealth is available for:
- Most types of medical visits.
- Some urgent dental visits.
- Most behavioral health (counseling) visits. Must be a primary-care patient or previously enrolled in the IOP (Intensive Outpatient Program).
How does Telehealth Work?
Having access to your medical care team is easier than ever with our Telehealth services. Patients and providers can communicate online or over the phone, letting each patient connect with their healthcare team from home.

WIC and CSFP
In light of recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention around social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, our WIC program has received authorization from the US Department of Agriculture to conduct all appointments by phone.
Individuals can apply for assistance by contacting their local WIC office, and can find the office closest to them at http://www.signupwic.com. All appointment types, including certifications and follow up appointments, can be completed by phone. Residents who have a scheduled WIC appointment should keep it and expect a phone call from their local WIC office.
The WIC program provides nutrition education and support to help keep pregnant women, new mothers, infants, and preschool children healthy and strong, and all New Hampshire WIC offices are working to ensure that clients continue to get the services they need with minimal disruption.
