Right Care at Right Times - Genesis Health System

Right Care at Right Times

Primary care “medical homes” are the first step for medical care and advice. They can coordinate care between specialists and health facilities. Some examples of care given include:

  • Acute conditions, such as coughs, colds, bladder infection, rash, fever, and urine and throat cultures
  • Minor injuries, such as sprains, bruises, cuts
  • Routine care, such as physicals, paps, and vaccinations
  • Most offices offer same-day visits for acute conditions and injuries. Physicians are also available by phone after hours or on weekends.

The on-call physicians can often arrange an office visit for the next day.

Convenient Care

Similar to a doctor’s office, Convenient Care offers diagnosis and treatment of minor injuries and illnesses.

Physician offices or on-call physicians may refer patients after hours or during the day when office schedules are full.

Convenient Care staff can help patients who do not have medical homes established with primary care physicians.
