Where to Go for Care
Your Munson Healthcare family doctor, pediatrician, or internist (also known as a primary care provider) is your main medical home.
Munson Healthcare Urgent Care or Walk-in Clinics help fill a vital gap when you become sick or injured, but your regular doctor is not available.
The emergency room (ER) is meant only for serious illness and injury.
