PRIMARY CARE

After-Hours Care Clinic

At Day Kimball Healthcare, your primary care practitioner (PCP) is at the core of our patient-centered medical home (PCMH) approach to healthcare. In this model, your PCP doesn’t just care for your dayto-day health needs and treat you when you’re sick; he or she also serves as your healthcare advocate by coordinating all aspects of your care throughout our system.

On weekdays, your Day Kimball Medical Group primary care provider can meet your urgent care needs with same-day sick appointments during regular office hours. But if illness or injury strikes in the evening or over the weekend, we’re still here for you.

Your PCP’s first priority is to keep you well by providing preventive care and helping you to manage your own health, thereby improving your quality of life and reducing your healthcare costs.

Urgent care is the delivery of unscheduled medical care for injuries or illnesses that require immediate attention but are not life-threatening or serious enough to warrant a visit to an emergency department. With evening and weekend hours to support your Day Kimball Medical Group PCP, our After-Hours Care Clinic provides a convenient, more efficient and lower-cost alternative to the emergency department for minor illnesses and injuries, without sacrificing quality of care.

But as the “hub” of your healthcare universe, your primary care team is also your direct connection to all the other integrated care services available through Day Kimball Healthcare. If specialized care becomes necessary, your PCP is there to not only provide referrals but also to ensure that all of your care providers are working together effectively and efficiently to deliver the best possible care.

Day Kimball Healthcare offers integrated, comprehensive care close to home. To learn more about all of our primary care services visit daykimball.org/primarycare.

Our Integrated Network of Care

Our integrated system allows your Day Kimball Medical Group PCP to “talk” about your health with our After-Hours Care Clinic staff and vice-versa, through electronic medical records that provide instant access to your medical information. Our specialists, diagnostic imaging technicians, laboratory technicians and other healthcare professionals utilize this system as well, so your entire care team can make an informed and comprehensive evaluation of your condition. In this way, you can be assured of top-quality care within a truly integrated and holistic approach that also eliminates errors and redundant services to help you control your healthcare costs. Once you’ve left the After-Hours Care Clinic we’ll continue to support your care and recovery by keeping your PCP informed of your visit. This will ensure that you’ll receive any necessary follow-up treatment as well as important preventive healthcare and other integrated services to help keep you well in the days ahead.
