Our ACS Health Center is committed to the health, well-being, and safety of ACS students, staff and community. The difference in private and government clinics is that in the latter, a patient can get healthcare at a much cheaper rate but would have to wait for a long time before he or she can see the doctor due to the large number of patients there who also wants to seek for medical help.
Taking the initiative of intensive primary health care unit gets me involved in the lives of our students and thank God the office has gained the confidence and trust of my community to show a very active role in student life and helping all to do their best.
Some clinics function as a place for people with injuries or illnesses to come and be seen by a triage nurse or other health worker In these clinics, the injury or illness may not be serious enough to require a visit to an emergency room (ER), but the person can be transferred to one if needed.
Besides GPs, if a clinic is a polyclinic , it can house outpatient departments of some medical specialties, such as gynecology , dermatology , ophthalmology , otolaryngology , neurology , pulmonology , cardiology , and endocrinology In some university cities , polyclinics contain outpatient departments for the entire teaching hospital in one building.
We also thought it was a nice touch that the packet included a map to the clinic and driving directions from Salt Lake City (the general route we would be driving.) It also included a brochure from a local hotel that has special rates for patients of the clinic.
