Polyclinic Now Temporary Operational Changes

To help prevent the spread of respiratory infection in our community, we have made changes to the types of patients and conditions we are seeing at Polyclinic Now. Thank you for your understanding during this temporary change in operations.

Monday – Friday, 9 am – 5 pm: Polyclinic Now will see patients with respiratory illness only. Patients with other urgent care needs should contact their primary care provider’s office.

Saturday/Sunday, 9 am – 5 pm: Polyclinic Now will serve as an Urgent Care Clinic to treat all urgent care issues. We will separate patients with respiratory illnesses from those with other injuries or illnesses, for the protection of all patients and staff.
