Walk-in Clinic Icon The Walk-in Clinic diagnoses and treats common illnesses and minor injuries. We are available by appointment for all other healthcare needs.

We provide evaluation and treatment by a registered nurse or nurse practitioner. Medical Doctors are readily available if a higher level of care is required.

Walk-in appointments are often available, but not guaranteed. The Walk-In Clinic is not available the last hour of each day.Check in at the reception desk in the main lobby. The first available provider will see you as soon as possible. Wait time can vary. Patients with scheduled appointments may be seen before you, even if you have been waiting longer. (Remember, when you call to make an appointment in advance, your wait time at WHS will be reduced.)
