Primary Care Alternatives
Delivering the Right Care in the Right Place at the Right Time
Access to quality healthcare for Lee County residents and visitors is a major focus of the Healthy Lee Coalition. As part of a collaborative approach to increasing access and improving outcomes for uninsured and under-served, Lee County healthcare organizations and service providers offer alternative locations to the emergency room setting, such as neighborhood centers and clinics.
Key services provided include primary, non-urgent medical care for adults; diagnostic laboratory and radiology services; cancer and other disease screenings; adult immunizations; adult screenings for elevated blood levels, communicable diseases and cholesterol; mental health care services; case management, referrals and outreach services such as transportation, interpreters and patient education.
Non-emergent patients can receive healthcare in the appropriate setting to help improve quality of care and access for patients and avoid unnecessary emergency room visits.
