If you're not feeling well and show symptoms of fever, cough, or shortness of breath, or have had close, direct contact with someone with the coronavirus, please call our patient scheduling center at (202) 469-4699 before coming to one of our health centers.

WE'RE OPEN AND HERE FOR YOU!

Your health matters. As our community faces challenges related to the coronavirus, Unity is committed to keeping our patients healthy and safe. To protect yourself, your loved ones, and our staff, please call (202) 469-4699 to schedule an appointment before visiting our health centers in person. 

Ensuring Your Safety

We take the safety of our patients, staff, and community seriously. Here is a list of measures we’ve put in place to keep you safe:

  • All visitors are screened for COVID-19 symptoms prior to their visit and upon entry into our facilities. 

  • All staff are screened for COVID-19 symptoms daily.

  • Masks covering the mouth and nose are required for all people inside all of our facilities at all times.

  • Physical distancing (people maintaining 6 feet between them) in waiting areas is strictly enforced.

  • Only one visitor may accompany a patient to an appointment to limit the number of people inside our facilities.

  • Increased cleaning of patient exam and visitor areas allows us to maintain a safe, hygienic environment.

  • We are separating sick and well patients where possible to reduce potential exposure.

  • All staff are following strict hand hygiene guidance and hand sanitizer is available throughout the facility.

Hours of Operations

Get Your Flu Shot!

It is more important than ever to get your flu shot to keep you and your family safe during the pandemic. All in-person visits will be offered the flu vaccine. We also offer designated times at our health centers just for the flu shot with walk-in availability.  Please see the chart above for our flu clinic hours. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call 202-469-4699 today!

Telehealth Visits

Telehealth video and phone appointments is our preferred method of taking care of your health needs during this time. From the convenience and comfort of your own home, you can see and speak to your provider to help with acute and chronic issues, ranging from monitoring diabetes or hypertension to helping you to manage mild cold symptoms to providing guidance on your child's development and wellness.

All you need is a smartphone or a computer with video capabilities to schedule a telehealth video appointment! No smartphone? No problem. You can schedule an audio-only visit through any telephone.

While telehealth is acceptable for the majority of conditions, we recognize that not everything can be done remotely and are providing in-person services at all of our health centers. Many of your health needs can be addressed during a telehealth appointment. However, if the provider needs to see you at one of our locations, an in-person appointment will be made.

Have an in-person appointment?

With our new check-in kiosks, registration for in-person appointments are now easier and safer than ever. Use the kiosks at the entry of the health center to be seen quickly by your provider.

New Patients

We are currently accepting new patients! Just call our patient scheduling team at 202-469-4699 to get started.
