At Carle, our primary focus is to keep you and your family healthy. The best way to do that is through routine care at one of our many primary care locations. With primary care clinics throughout the region, we offer complete care for every member of your family.
Primary care offers you a consistent point of entry into the Carle health system, and a healthcare home that you can always return to. We encourage you to get to know our locations, services, and to look through our primary care provider (PCP) database, to help you choose the right primary care service for you.
In primary care, we treat a wide range of medical conditions and injuries for patients of all ages. With a care team dedicated to your specific needs, you can be confident that your health is being overseen by a team of highly trained individuals, who will work their hardest to keep you healthy.
And if your health needs require a different type of treatment or a more specialized approach, your care team will be there to get you the care you need by coordinating with our Carle specialty departments.
Why Choose a Carle Provider
We understand that choosing a primary care provider (PCP) can be a difficult task. Our provider database includes patient ratings for almost every provider in our system, giving you honest reviews from patients just like you, to help you make the decision. Connecting with a primary care provider and their care team – no matter what area of primary care they may be in – provides you with a direct channel to all other specialists and services within our system.
Navigating what type of care to use when you or your loved ones are ill or injured can be difficult. At Carle Health we always encourage our patients to start with your Primary Care Physician (PCP), but we know that sometimes that route isn't always available. So where do you go when you need care now?
Walk-in or Convenient Care: Carle Health has many different options for walk-in care depending on where you live. In the Greater Peoria urgent care and express care locations can get your seen by a medcal provider without the need for an appointment. In our other regions, Convenient care and convenient care plus walk-in services are available by walking in or online appointment scheduling for when you need care now for a non-life threatening injury or illness.
Virtual Health: State-of-the-art audio and video technologies that allow you to connect with a provider wherever you are, whenever you need us. With multiple locations across Illinois, we know that sometimes traveling isn’t always possible. Virtual health can bridge these gaps and connect you to the care you need in a safe and convenient manner. Visit our virtual health page for more information on these services.
Emergency care: If you ever believe your life (or someone else's) is in danger, call 911 or head to the nearest Emergency Department. Our hospital emergency departments provide high-quality care for serious injuries and health issues, such as heart attacks and stroke, high fevers and motor vehicle injuries.
What is a Medical Home?
As a member of a medical home, you can expect to be an active participant in your healthcare. In this model of care, you will have access to a full team of providers dedicated to ensuring you get the right care, at the right time. In a Patient Centered Medical Home, care is well coordinated and patient focused.
Your team consists of your primary care physician (PCP), nurse practitioners, physician assistants, registered nurses, medical assistants and other support team members. Your physician is your team leader and ensures all team members are consistently communicating about your medical needs and progress. Your care team communicates continuously to stay informed of yours and other patients' needs and progress.
However, the most important part of Patient Centered Medical Home is you. Your care team is there to know you and your health, and to work with you to make sure that we are meeting your healthcare needs.
