Brattleboro Memorial Hospital is pleased to announce the transition of its travel clinic services to the new Tri-State Travel Clinic under the direction of Dr. George Idelkope, effective immediately.
The BMH travel clinic was created in 2011 as part of the hospital’s Occupational Health Services department, with Dr. Idelkope as the medical advisor and Jean Bristol as one of the registered nurses on staff at the clinic. Bristol has moved with the travel clinic to Dr. Idelkope’s office, providing continuity of care for patients. Bristol has more than 20 years of experience in travel medicine and is a member of the International Society of Travel Medicine.
Dr. Idelkope, who is board certified in family practice, attended medical school at the University of Connecticut and completed internships and his residency at St. Mary’s Hospital in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The Tri-State Travel Clinic recommends contacting their office six to eight weeks prior to travel outside the United States for vaccinations and guidance on safe foods to eat and drink, insect bite prevention, and other travel safety tips. The clinic can provide country-specific, timely information about your destination, including local health and safety concerns from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and The World Health Organization.
The new location of the Tri-State Travel Clinic is 68 Brattleboro Road, Hinsdale, NH. The new telephone number is 603-336-5948.
