The Falls Medical Clinic

The Falls Medical Clinic is attached to the hospital and works in tandem with the hospital to provide top quality health care to local and area residents.  For example, when the Clinic books appointments it allows for time during the day to help the hospital emergency room manage emergencies. This helps to keep the wait times at the hospital emergency room shorter.

The Medical Clinic is focused on family and community health and providing medical care for people with minor illnesses and injuries.  It is not a walk-in clinic.  Please call the number below to book an appointment.
