Visit family physician or local clinic for non-emergency medical care

Wilson Medical Center is asking the public to visit their family physician or use local clinics for all health conditions not requiring emergency care. Due to the increase in flu and respiratory cases the hospital is experiencing significant delays in patient admissions. "We would like to ask our citizens to determine best place to seek care for non-life threatening emergencies and ask our community to evaluate their health care needs at this time" said Bill Caldwell, CEO for Wilson Medical Center. People who are sick and need to seek non-emergency medical care may call 1-800-424-DOCS for information on primary care and walk-in clinics.
