CAH expands access with new walk-in clinic

CARLINVILLE (Aug. 16, 2018) – As a way to expand access to primary care services, Carlinville Area Hospital and Carlinville Family Health care have recently opened their new CareNow weekend walk-in clinic, a weekend-only clinic designed for non-emergency medical care.

The new weekend walk-in clinic opened July 14 and compliments Carlinville Family Health Care’s existing care by offering hours on Saturday and Sunday. People do not need to be a current patient to use the clinic; all walk-ins are welcome.

CareNow is located inside the existing Carlinville Family Health Care space, which is in the medical office building directly adjacent to the hospital. On weekends, patients can access CareNow through the medical office building entrance from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The clinic provides treatment for non-emergent common health ailments at a cost that is often less than an Emergency Department visit. The clinic can provide treatment for medical conditions such as colds and flu, sprains and strains, fevers, bug bites and stings, minor burns and lacerations, urinary tract infections, nausea and vomiting, eye and ear infections skin rashes and infections, and more.
