Village Health Services

Here are some of the services and features offered by Macomb County’s most comprehensive family and urgent care center —

  • Physicians always in house
  • Family Practice available 24/7/365
  • 24 CARE – our comprehensive follow-up service that informs you of results and integrates and coordinates your care with other doctors and facilities
  • Occupational Medicine available 24/7/365

Powerful electronic medical record (EMR) software allows Village Health doctors to have your entire, updated health information available any time of the day or night. This top-rated and continuously updated system alerts Village Health doctors to potentially dangerous drug interactions before they can cause problems.

State-of-the-art digital x-rays done in-house and read immediately by the staff doctor.

Our new remote viewing x-ray system enables our board-certified radiologist to review your x-rays and issue a final report in 1-2 days. This additional “over-read” offers an extra measure of safety to our patients.

What sets Village Health apart

All minor medical emergencies are treated right away, including coughs, sore throats, cuts, ankle sprains and rashes. But what truly sets Village Health apart from most urgent cares is that we provide anytime access to many of the treatments offered in a hospital emergency room — at a fraction of the cost. Here are just a few of them —

  • I.V. lines, allowing fluid infusion and intravenous medications
  • Cardiac monitoring and EKG’s
  • Slit lamp (high magnification) eye exams and removal of ocular foreign bodies
  • Suturing of complex facial lacerations
  • Plaster splinting of fractures and dislocations
  • Stat lab testing
  • Patient observation for extended periods available as needed at any time
  • Allergy shot injections (using the vials provided by your allergist)

We also have select services generally available only in subspecialty clinics —

  • Audiometry and tympanometry for hearing and ear drum testing
  • Vision analysis to detect functional visual impairment
  • 24-hour Holter studies for diagnosis of cardiac arrythmias
  • Pulmonary function testing — results available in minutes
  • Drug and alcohol testing — 24 hours a day for workplace injuries
  • Hemoglobin A1C and PT/INR blood testing to monitor diabetic progress and blood thinners’ effectiveness, respectively

All of the above capabilities enable Village Health to treat the vast majority of conditions presenting to us without requiring hospitalization or referral. But when Village Health doctors diagnose an immediately life-threatening condition, they have the equipment and training needed to initiate treatment and stabilization of the patient prior to emergency transport to any of the four area hospitals. Paramedics – stationed less than a mile away – arrive through a dedicated ambulance rear entrance. Our physician then briefs the receiving medical team and sends a written report to further enhance continuity of care.

Because quality care is so important to us, each patient seen at Village Health receives a next-day follow up call. This allows us to monitor the treatment’s progress and, if the patient’s condition is worsening, to alert the doctor, who can intervene with further treatment or referral.
