At Matthew Walker Comprehensive Health Center, we have a comprehensive and integrated structure that allows our team of providers to work together in a coordinated fashion for the benefit of the patient.


This level of integration, supported by sophisticated information technology, means that the patient, along with her/his appropriate medical information, can move smoothly from the clinic to the hospital or from primary care to specialty care. It also means that our patients receive quality and affordable healthcare. We have an intense focus on primary care, dental care, health education and prevention. Our goal is to keep people healthy so that they can live long and thrive.


We believe the comprehensive approach to healthcare is the most efficient and effective model to ensuring quality continuous care. We have a long and rich history of ensuring that the necessary services are accessible and affordable for the health and well-being of the community. Our services are intended to meet the needs of the youngest child, through the primary years of growth, into the golden years of aging.
