The Finney County Health Department recently discovered that someone is making prank phone calls using our Department’s phone number on the caller ID. The call consists of a recording ‘informing’ area residents that they’ve been identified as possibly having a sexually transmitted disease (STD) or as having contact with someone who has an STD. These calls did not come from the Finney County Health Department.
Here are some tips to verify whether the Health Department is actually attempting to contact you regarding your protected health information or any visits to our facility:
If you receive any phone call that may seem suspicious, please contact our office at (620) 272-3600. Our staff can verify whether we have attempted to contact you.
As always, your privacy is a top priority for Finney County and we assure you that your medical information remains confidential and secure in our department.
If you believe you need STD screening, you may walk-in to the Health Department between Monday-Thursday, anytime between 7am-5pm.
