BOISE, May, 10, 2023 – In person Central District Health medical services in McCall have been moved to telehealth format. Patients interested in telehealth visits can call 208-327-7400 to schedule their appointment. Immunization and health screening clinics will continue to be offered at different locations in Valley County while working with various community organizations.
The CDH Valley County office located in McCall remains open to the public and provides programs such as Women, Infants and Children (WIC), infant and early childhood oral health, as well as all land and facility-based environmental health programs including land development; septic system permits; and childcare, public swimming pool and food establishment inspections, among others.
“CDH continues to serve Valley County with programs and services that help improve quality of life among our residents,” said Stephanie Myers, CDH division administrator, Family & Clinic Services. “After the pandemic, we’ve had very few patients return to in-person care for our primary health services, and we’re now happy to offer telehealth options for those who want to use our primary care services but can’t travel to our site in Boise.”
Additional programs and services that CDH provides in Valley County outside of its office include nutrition classes; tobacco and vape cessation classes; Fit and Fall Proof classes; disease control and investigation; and public health preparedness.
CDH will continue working with the county’s schools, and health care and long-term care facilities to provide services, resources and referrals. CDH is also a partner of the Valley County Opioid Response Project (VCORP) to address opioid misuse, treatment and recovery in Valley County and supports several community organizations through subgrant funding.
