At Providence, we've created a new way to care for you and your family. One of our first two Providence Health Centers, Tanasbourne Health Center, brings the services you want even closer to you in brand new, beautiful facilities that feature state-of-the-art technology and are designed with your needs in mind.
Our services include family medicine, specialty care, immediate care, physical and occupational therapy, laboratory, medical imaging, day surgery and pharmacy - all in one convenient location.
No appointment necessary for immediate care, pharmacy or laboratory services.
Why a health center?
Providence Health Centers are designed to make it easier, quicker and more convenient to obtain your medical services. Many procedures that were once available only at hospitals can be performed on a same-day basis at locations outside the hospital setting. Most tests and simple procedures can be performed on site, avoiding the need to travel to a hospital to receive care.
How is this different from a hospital or clinic?
Providence Health Centers do not have hospital beds for overnight stays but will include an array of services that you cannot always find in one place. A center might provide primary care; immediate care; laboratory services; diagnostic imaging; dermatology, and rehabilitation therapy services to name a few.
Do I need Providence insurance?
No. Your insurance may influence which providers you see at the Providence Health Center but the center is not exclusively for those insured by Providence Health Plans.
How do I go about using the center?
Can I use the health center for emergency and immediate care situations?
For emergencies, if you experience a life-threatening injury or illness at any time, call 9-1-1 immediately or visit the nearest hospital emergency room.
Both Providence Tanasbourne Health Center and Providence Bridgeport Health Center offer Immediate Care facilities. Our immediate care clinics provide treatment for minor illnesses and/or injuries that do not require hospitalization but need direct attention, such as cuts, sprains, minor trauma, upper respiratory infections, stomachaches, headaches, dizziness, colds or muscle pain. Walk-in appointments are available.
