Community Happenings June 15, 2012

The Mike O’Callaghan Federal Medical Center’s Pediatrics, Family Health and Immunizations Clinics are offering extended hours

to increase the availability of care. Patients should seek care via the appointment line instead of the Emergency Room for primary care needs, as more appointments are now available. Patients with non-emergency health concerns may experience very long waits at the ER since patients must be treated in order of seriousness, and may overtax Emergency Room resources while unfilled appointments are available through regular appointments. The MOFMC appointment line can be reached at 702-653-CARE (653-2273). Patients with emergency care needs should still seek care at the emergency room, or dial 911 for life-threatening medical emergencies.
