Patients and families looking for primary care physicians should take a look at the doctors working at the recently opened University of Toledo Health Family Medicine Center at Glendale Medical East. They are accepting new patients and offering new patient appointments within 24 hours and same-day sick appointments. In the newly renovated building, which formerly housed the Veterans Affairs Outpatient clinic, family care physicians will offer a wide range of services for patients of all ages, including urgent care, routine care for any illness, preventative health visits, weight management and school and sports physicals. Patients will also find newborn, infant, and child care, gynecology care, family planning, as well as vaccinations and sports medicine services. Staffers in the Geriatric Center, formerly located at Lutheran Homes at Wolf Creek, will offer care and services for the elderly, including nursing home care and home visits, when necessary. The 28,000 square foot facility will also offer laboratory services and minor surgery along with the family residency program, which since 2007 has called the campus of St. Luke’s Hospital in Maumee home.
Steve Bailey, clinic manager of the UT Health Family Medicine Center, notes the Center “…puts all these related services, which used to be spread out all over the area, together in one location. Having a center close to the resources at UTMC is more convenient for the patients and makes for better medicine.”
