At Carson Tahoe’s Acute Care Clinics, a nurse practitioner or physician assistant treats the lowest severity of health concerns, focusing on “get well and stay well” services at two Carson City and one Gardnerville Walmart locations. The cost is low and the wait is minimal, and most insurance is accepted also. Ages 24 months and older only.
Urgent care clinics can treat illnesses and injuries of a higher severity. Physicians work with the nurse practitioners and physician assistants to evaluate and care for things like lacerations, sprains or strains and upper respiratory infections.
Emergent care centers, a state-of-the-art approach that combines emergency care with the efficiency of urgent care, often serve as comprehensive care sites in rural areas. Carson Tahoe Minden Medical Center provides access to over 35 medical specialties for office appointments, and acts as a freestanding emergency room able to stabilize events such as stroke or cardiac emergencies. When necessary, transport to the Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center is easily available.
