After Hours Care

Access to Care and After Hours Care

We understand that health concerns don’t always keep a regular schedule. Alcona Health Center’s established patients have access to the provider on call evenings, weekends and holidays and we always reserve some same day appointments at each location to make sure you can be seen when you need us!

Acute Care Clinic offered at Alpena Services

Alcona Health Center is now offering “Acute Care” at our Alpena Services facility on US 23 North.  This new “Acute Care” clinic is an alternative service that is being offered in place of walk-in services that have been discontinued due to COVID-19.  “Acute Care” clinic hours will be offered Monday through Saturday for those who do not have an emergency but need to be seen the same or next day due to illness or injury.  In person and telehealth options will both be available. This service is open to all.  You do not need to be an established Alcona Health Center patient to access the “Acute Care” clinic hours.

Alcona Health Center asks that you please phone (989) 356-4049 to set up an appointment time for this “Acute Care” service prior to coming into the building.   With patient safety in mind, those who are coming to the clinic with an illness will now enter via the “Acute Care” entrance at the north end of the building.  This will allow the health center to better separate those coming in for wellness exams or follow up care from those who may be contagious.  Screening procedures will still be in place and masks are required to worn in the facility at all times. For a full listing of “Acute Care” hours please visit the Alpena Services location page. 


When and Where to Go for Care…

​For Access to Your Patient Centered Medical Home Evenings, Weekends and Holidays…

If the clinic or location that you are seen at is closed and you have a health concern, call our On-Call Provider. They will provide you with sound medical advice, letting you know if you need to go to the ER or if you should consider other options.  Alcona Health Center’s On-Call Provider has 24 hour access to our patient’s medical records.
