Benefits of PrimeCare

 

Just as its new name indicates, St. Joseph’s PrimeCare is fully operated by SJH, a benefit you see in expedited wait times and office visits, plus:

  • Utilizing state-of-the-art technology available in the new St. Joseph’s Hospital (including fully licensed X-ray and laboratory facilities staffed by experienced technicians).
  • Having the ability to furnish your primary health care provider with access to your visit’s information.
  • Providing quality treatment for minor illnesses and injuries.

Additional clinical support comes from a partnership with Vituity, a nation-wide premier care provider of:

  • Emergency department and walk-in clinic physicians.
  • Advanced clinicians.
  • First-class medical professionals who provide the care and attention you deserve.

 

Walk-in Care

 

For flus and colds, minor injuries and lacerations and other issues requiring prompt care, St. Joseph's PrimeCare is always here and always ready. You can find quick, quality care 7 days a week, no appointment needed. And patients typically spend only 60 minutes or less at the facility.

 

Primary Care

 

If you don't currently have a primary care physician, or if you need more scheduling flexibility in your primary care provider, St. Joseph's PrimeCare is the solution for you.

 

On-site Lab & X-ray Facilities

 

St. Joseph's PrimeCare utilizes the new St. Joseph's Hospital HSHS Medical Imaging and Lab — fully licensed X-ray and laboratory facilities staffed by experienced lab and X-ray techs. In general, that means you can get your test results during your visit. Then, if needed, the doctor will write prescriptions, make referrals or take other steps for follow-up care. It's quick and easy.
