What Is a Wellness Clinic?
Our wellness clinic offers non-urgent medical care via a scheduled appointment. As with EARH’s hospital and other healthcare facilities, the team at our wellness clinic consists of compassionate healthcare practitioners including nurses, doctors, and physician assistants.
If you’re experiencing a short-term illness, need a vaccination, or simply would like a regular wellness check-up, you can make an appointment and be seen usually within a few days.
Why Should You Visit the Wellness Clinic?
Most people tend to visit the doctor only when something’s wrong — they’ve come down with some kind of illness or suffered an injury. But your overall wellness requires some proactive work, as well. Staying healthy means taking steps to keep it that way.
A wellness visit is a health check-up that is usually performed once per year. A nurse or physician assistant will check your vitals and screen you for various health conditions. If needed, we’ll develop a plan to help you reach specific personal health goals.
The aim of a wellness visit is to promote good health and prevent diseases and other undesirable physical conditions. East Adams Rural Healthcare performs check-ups for a variety of reasons, including sports or work physicals.
If you’ve experienced a sudden change in your health — whether from a short-term virus or other unknown cause — it’s always a good idea to stop in for a visit with one of our healthcare professionals. We’ll do a thorough examination of your symptoms and provide treatment, if necessary.
The earlier your medical team can detect any problems, the better, so don’t delay making an appointment if you feel unwell.
The wellness clinic at EARH can see patients for a variety of reasons.
Remember, if you are experiencing a serious or life-threatening condition — things like chest pain, difficulty breathing, or severe bleeding — call 911 or head directly to our hospital’s emergency room.
