  • Urgent Care
  • Well-child visits
  • Childhood Obesity Program: Children and parents participate together in group activities and education sessions regarding healthy lifestyles
  • Dental referrals to AHS Dental Clinic
  • Developmentally appropriate screenings that use effective and cutting edge technology:
  • Vision Screener for early detection of potential vision problems
  • Bilirubin machine that provides pain-free instantaneous results that determine if newborn/infant has jaundice
  • Healthy Steps: a program that evaluates and coordinates referrals for infants and toddlers with concerns for developmental delay
  • Hospital & newborn coverage
