The Purpose of Primary Health Clinics

Rod Neill, chief operating officer for Mercy Health-Youngstown’s physician’s group, details the role of primary health-care offices and how they adapted in 2020.

Neill breaks down the health care structure into three categories: primary, urgent care and emergency.

Urgent care is for patients that are not suffering from life-threatening symptoms or situations. But some of those Mercy Health facilities were adjusted to handle COVID-19.
