Primary Care

The Clifton-Fine Hospital Primary Care Clinic is a convenient way to keep your entire family healthy. We provide a full range of services for patients of all ages, including routine physicals, preventative care, immunizations and seasonal vaccines, women’s health, medication management, school and sports physicals, pre-operative testing, free blood pressure screening, management of chronic conditions and integrated behavioral health services. (outpatient)

Please note we are a Family Medicine Office, and you must be an established patient to be evaluated in the office.  We are not a local urgent care center.

For any emergent conditions our hospital ER is available 24/7.

Your Patient-Centered Medical Home

We want your healthcare experience to be the best it can be. That’s why we recently adopted Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) as our principal care model. This team-based model of care, led by a primary care provider, emphasizes the importance of an ongoing patient-provider relationship for long-term health and utilizes a team-based approach to improve your patient experience. Your PCMH team works together to coordinate all of your health needs, including management of chronic conditions, behavioral health, visits to specialists, hospital admissions and discharges, information about preventative screenings, and routine check-ups and tests.

If you’re sick and need to be seen as soon as possible, our staff will schedule you for the next available appointment – often that same day. After hours, or for more critical needs, the Clifton-Fine Hospital Emergency Department provides care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

• Free Blood Pressure Checks
Now you can have your blood pressure checked with no appointment needed. Simply stop by any time the Primary Care Clinic is open to have your blood pressure taken. This service is offered as a courtesy to our patients and there is no cost to you.
