With 55,000 patient visits annually, renovations to the FMC will expand access to 75,000 patient visits over the next five years. The FMC offers primary care services, prenatal and well-baby services, geriatric services, lab and x-ray services, sports medicine, physical therapy, nutrition, acupuncture and a range of behavioral health services including nicotine dependence, substance abuse, weight management and psychology. The FMC offers same day service and extended hours.
“Several years ago, we completed an exhaustive process to redesign our patient flow to better serve our patients,” said Dr. Sam Weir, medical leader of the redesign project. “We worked with an architect to create a physical design that reflects the new patient flow. We are very proud of the new Family Medicine Center and over time we will be able to see up to 20,000 more patients annually.”
