HEALTH CLINIC OPENS TODAY
JCCC’s long-awaited health clinic opens Monday, Feb. 18, in 312 COM. Hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday; you don’t need an appointment. The clinic will be staffed by a nurse practitioner and an LPN, overseen by a physician (a graduate of JCCC). The cost is $25 or the amount of co-pay charged by your insurance carrier for seeing your primary care physician. The clinic can treat you for colds, flu, strains, sprains, women’s issues, immunization needs, TB skin tests and other general health needs. The clinic is not intended to replace your primary healthcare provider for the management of chronic health problems. However, blood pressure checks will be done free of charge for those individuals needing this service.
