At this time, Anchor of Hope is making efforts to minimize exposure and reduce transmission of the coronavirus (COVID-19) to our patients, clients and staff. Conversations are ongoing with our Medical Director, Board of Directors, Medical Services Team, and leadership. Additionally, our professional affiliation with NIFLA and Heartbeat International are providing an extension of support.

 We are asking screening questions, prior to entering our facility to identify those who are at risk of COVID-19. We appreciate your cooperation and patience during this process.

 If you have an appointment, please call us at (920)452-4673 so we can prescreen all appointments and greet you at our front door.

 If you do not have an appointment, please call the above number to speak to someone for further guidance.

 It is important to stay home if you are sick to prevent spreading the virus. Please help us protect our vulnerable population by answering these questions

 Do you have any symptoms?

  • Cough
  • Fever (temperature above 99.5F forehead/ 100.0 oral)
  • Shortness of breath, or lower respiratory infection symptoms

 Have you had potential exposure?

  • In the past month, have you been in contact with someone who was confirmed or suspected to have the coronavirus (COVID-19)?
  • Have you traveled outside of Wisconsin in the past month?

If you answer YES to any of the above questions, please call the Center at (920)452-4673 so we can assess risk and make appropriate referrals. If our staff assesses you to be at risk, you will be asked to schedule your appointment to a future date for the safety of our staff and patients.
