Illness and injury never coordinate with your schedule and always strike at what seems like the most inconvenient times. At Trinity Health, we believe that, even though illness and injury aren’t convenient, your care should be.
Our FirstCare Walk-In Clinic delivers the immediate care you need without an appointment or visit to an emergency room. We diagnose and treat illnesses, such as the common cold, flu, sinus and urinary tract infections, and minor injuries, such as sprains.
When you visit our clinic, you can expect the same great care you’re used to receiving from your own primary care doctor. And you don’t need to have a Trinity Health primary care doctor to visit our walk-in clinic. We will work with you to understand your symptoms, deliver tests and treatments and coordinate the care you need.
