Adult General Medicine

Physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants provide general medical care to Clinic patients. This helps alleviate the flow of patients into area emergency rooms to provide basic primary care.

Pediatric General Medicine

The Community Clinic holds a weekly walk-in pediatric clinic for children in need of care. This clinic is staffed by volunteer pediatricians and is open on Wednesdays from 9 until 11.

Laboratory Services

The Community Clinic provides limited on-site laboratory services for Clinic patients. This alleviates additional trips to the lab, and increases the quality of care received at the Community Clinic.


Adult dental services are provided on an appointment-only basis and include evaluation, examination and extractions.

In addition to the medical and dental services provided, the Community Clinic has Patient Advocates who provide assistance with assessing psychosocial needs of our patients and mobilizing community resources to improve patient outcomes.


The Mercy Diabetic Education Clinic teaches nutrition, fitness, monitoring, and disease management. The Diabetic Clinic is offered every Monday and Wednesday by appointment only.

The Community Clinic focuses on providing services that cannot be found elsewhere in the community and does not duplicate services that may be offered by other local not-for-profit agencies.
