We're here for your health.

Choosing the right care for an illness or injury can be confusing. The good news is there are a lot of convenient care options available.

Primary health care is where you go to help manage existing health issues – or prevent them. As your long-term partner in health and wellness, a primary care provider can support the well-being of the whole family and be a reliable source for health education.

Primary care includes:

  • Comprehensive annual and well child checks
  • Specialized care for both women and men
  • Vaccinations and immunizations
  • Preventive and wellness care
  • Chronic disease monitoring
  • Care of routine medical conditions
  • Management of allergy, asthma and skin conditions
  • Treatment of acute illness and injuries, such as fractures
  • Tobacco cessation

Accepts all insurance types.
Office hours vary.

  • Head trauma
  • Seizures
  • Stroke symptoms
  • Severe bleeding
  • Losing consciousness

Accepts all insurance types.
Always open.
Use only for critical illness or injury.

Did you know?

ED visits result in higher costs and can have longer wait times than other care options. If your illness or injury is not life-threatening, look at our other options first.
