We offer care for acute illness and urgent problems. Our medical care staff will plan your treatment and complete any procedures or tests that are needed. Our providers work with area hospitals and follow patients through their entire treatment if they require services outside of our facility.
Whether you are newly diagnosed with a condition or have been diagnosed for many years, our staff provides a model of care unique to your needs. We offer medication management, goal setting and coaching for you and your family, health assessments, and personal education. Our medical care team coordinates patient care for conditions such as cardiovascular disease, chronic respiratory disease, and diabetes.
Our health center performs many patient laboratory tests on-site in a Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) waived lab. For any tests we are unable to complete on-site, staff will coordinate testing at another facility and will follow up with patient’s results, in most cases the next day.
Our medical care team is committed to offering preventive care, immunizations, and educational tools to help you manage your health. We help patients understand risk factors and early disease warning signs to prevent illness and disease. We also provide vaccinations for adults and children, including free vaccinations for newborns to 18-year-olds who are eligible for the Vaccines for Children (VFC) program.
We care deeply about your child’s health and growth, and we are well-equipped to offer the care your family needs.

It is important for your child to be seen regularly by their care team — even if they are not sick — to ensure they are growing and developing as expected.
