The Center has been open Friday through Monday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. for visitors and residents whose primary care physicians are unavailable. Now it’s also open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.  The need for extended hours will be re-evaluated in February. Also, the healthcare providers at the Walk-in can test for flu if indicated.
