We are thrilled to announce the opening of our new primary care clinic, conveniently located in the lower level of the hospital. We are dedicated to providing comprehensive and compassionate healthcare to our community, offering a wide range of services under one roof.

Comprehensive Services:
Our clinic offers a wide range of primary care services, including:

  • Annual checkups and preventive care: We believe in the importance of early detection and prevention. Our annual checkups include comprehensive physical exams, screenings, and immunizations to help you stay healthy and prevent future health problems.
  • Acute and chronic disease management: Our team is experienced in managing a wide range of acute and chronic conditions, from common illnesses like colds and flu to more complex conditions like diabetes and heart disease.
  • Women’s health: We offer a full range of women’s health services, including well-woman exams, and family planning.
  • Mental health services: We understand the importance of mental health and offer individual and group therapy, medication management, and other support services.
  • Pediatric care: We provide comprehensive care for children of all ages, from newborns to adolescents.
  • On-site laboratory and imaging services: Our clinic is equipped with advanced laboratory and imaging equipment, allowing us to perform tests and procedures quickly and efficiently.

Convenient and Accessible:
Located in the lower level of the hospital, our clinic is easily accessible and conveniently located in the heart of the community. We also offer flexible appointment scheduling and telehealth options for your convenience. Most importantly, we offer same-day and next-day appointments to ensure you receive the care you need when you need it.

Seamless Continuity of Care:
We understand the importance of continuity of care. That’s why we use EPIC Electronic Medical Records, the same system used by most healthcare providers in our community. This allows for seamless sharing of your medical information, ensuring that all your healthcare providers have access to your complete medical history.
