We Look Forward to Seeing You!
Our healthcare workers have heroically fought on the frontlines of the COVID-19 battle, and we remain here for those who continue to come in with COVID. But we also need to return to providing care for those patients getting a knee replaced, seeking relief for a painful spine debilitation, or are considering life-preserving weight-loss surgery. We serve our community’s healthcare needs in a myriad of ways. As COVID-19 remains in the community until a vaccine is created, we know you have a multitude of questions about how TBHC will continue to deliver safe, effective and compassionate care.
Here's what you need to know about coming in for a visit to one of our ambulatory care sites:
- Ambulatory sites are now open with modifications to ensure your safety.
- As a precaution, all patients and visitors will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms at all access points to the hospital and ambulatory sites.
- Appointments are being scheduled to assure that a safe number of patients are allowed in the waiting room at any one time and that social distancing can be maintained at all times by both patients and staff. Masks are required to be worn by all patients and those accompanying patients at the visit. All staff are wearing masks, as well.
- Only one parent or caregiver is allowed with a patient, including one for an elderly or handicapped patient, and one to accompany a pregnant woman during prenatal visits.
- Patient exam rooms will be closely monitored throughout the day and disinfected as needed. The waiting areas and common areas will be cleaned and disinfected periodically during the day and each evening.
- Telemedicine visits are available for patients, as well as COVID-19 screening.

As a New York State Designated AIDS Center, we provide comprehensive ambulatory and primary care services to people with HIV/AIDS. We care for adolescents and adults.
TBHC has two PATH Centers, one on the main hospital campus and one located at Church Avenue Family Health Center.
Both sites offer PrEP!
PrEP stands for pre-exposure prophylaxis. PrEP is a daily pill that can help prevent HIV transmission. PrEP must be taken every day to ensure maximum effectiveness and should be used in combination with other HIV-prevention methods, including condoms.
How to know if PrEP is right for you?
- Are you HIV negative?
- Are you sexually active?
- Do you have sex with people whose HIV status you don’t know?
- Are you in a relationship with an HIV-Positive partner?
- Do you or your partner inject drugs?
If you answered YES to any of the questions above, then we can help you learn more about PrEP.
