Mask Policy Change Effective 1/2/2024

Whole Life Health Care is changing our masking policy, effective January 2, 2024, to ensure the safety of our employees and patients. We have been advised that our community has now reached a high level of respiratory virus activity.

The changes you will see are as follows:

  • Providers and nurses will wear a facility-issued face mask during direct interactions with patients. Direct interactions are those in patient rooms and other clinical care areas.
  • Support Staff will wear a facility-issued face masks at the check-in and check-out desks.
  • Patients, and those accompanying them, will be strongly encouraged, but not required, to wear a facility-issued face mask during direct interactions with staff. If you choose to mask, we ask that you wear a WLHC face mask on top of your own N95 respirator or face mask. By wearing one of our masks on top of your mask from home, it helps us know that the mask you are wearing is clean and effective. Masks for adults and children are available at the Handicapped Entrance.
  • Masking for patients and visitors is not required in lobbies, waiting rooms, and other common areas, unless you are sick.

As a reminder, please contact WLHC if you meet any of the criteria below before an in-person appointment. We will advise you about next steps.

  • Have a fever or other flu-like symptoms
  • Have a known exposure to COVID-19 within the last 10 days
  • Have a known COVID-19 infection and are in your isolation period

If you have an appointment in-person and meet any of the criteria above, you need to wear one of our masks, regardless of the season or level of respiratory virus in our community. Support persons who meet this criteria should not accompany you to WLHC.

In addition, if you have a fever or other flu-like symptoms, you will be required to take a home COVID-19 test before you will be seen in the office. If you have a known exposure to COVID-19 within the last 10 days, please contact the office regarding testing and your visit.

Travis Palmer leaving WLHC

Whole Life Health Care would like to wish Travis Palmer all the best in his new endeavors.

Following is his message to the patients he has cared for during his time at WLHC:

February 23, 2023

To My Dear Patients,

I am writing this letter to inform you that I will be leaving my post and no longer seeing patients at Whole Life Health Care after March 14, 2023.

I will be taking a new opportunity as the nurse practitioner for the homeless primary care team with the VA in Manchester.  While I am very excited for this new position, I am also heavy-hearted to be leaving the role as your primary care provider.  It has been an absolute privilege to have served and gotten to know you and your families and I cannot thank you enough for placing your trust in me to provide your health care over the past 5 years.

I am confident that you will continue to find excellent, compassionate care with any of our other PCP’s at Whole Life Health Care and would certainly encourage you to remain at this practice.  Please contact our office for any questions or rescheduling concerns.

To your health,

Travis Palmer, APRN
