These teams meet weekly to discuss new and established patients on their panel for the purpose of care coordination. The MHC also offers a daily walk-in clinic in which established patients may present without an appointment to request non-emergent, on-demand case management and clinical services, such as medication adjustments and brief psychotherapy.
