ABOUT THE UNION COUNTY HEALTH CENTER CLINIC

Union County Health Center is UCGH’s hospital-based rural health clinic. The clinic is contracted with most insurance companies. Our providers and staff at Union County Health Center focus on providing the best quality care to patients.

Located adjacent to the hospital, the UCHC Clinic is staffed with four excellent providers and multiple support staff. Because of the clinic location, services like x-rays and lab work are usually available on the same day as an appointment.

Please note that the Union County Health Center is not a walk-in clinic, though if we are able to fit you in, we will. In the ideal, patients should make an appointment prior to visiting.

To make an appointment, phone us at 575-374-2273.
