Tri-State Minor Care Center: Ready to Serve
When you need care quickly, but don’t need the emergency room, visit Tri-State Minor Care!

What to Expect
Our highest priorities are your health and well-being. We have implemented extra precautions to ensure that we are doing everything we can to minimize any risk to our patients and staff members.
We are testing and screening.
- Every person who visits Tri-State Minor Care – or any other of Tri-State’s facilities – is screened for COVID-19 symptoms and risk factors.
- All staff members and providers are self-screening daily. They do not come into work if they have any sign of symptoms related to COVID-19.
- We will immediately separate anyone who we believe may have COVID-19 before they come into contact with other patients.
- Masking in the facilities.
- All staff members and patients must wear masks in Tri-State Minor Care.
- Surfaces and equipment are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, using products that are effective against the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
- We clean our waiting room frequently.
- Our exam rooms are disinfected frequently, including before and after each patient.
- All of our providers and staff wash or sanitize their hands before and after interacting with patients.
Social distancing protocols.
- We are not allowing visitors, with only a few exceptions. If you are visiting Tri-State Minor Care, please come alone unless you are underage or need assistance.
- We are following social distancing guidelines for patients and staff members.
- Our waiting chairs are spaced six feet apart, and only a few patients are allowed in the waiting room at a time.
Do not ignore healthcare.
Your healthcare is just as important now as it was before COVID-19. If you are not feeling well, do not hesitate to call your primary care provider or come to the Tri-State Minor Care facility.
“We are seeing a decrease in patients seeking care,” said Craig Stein, Director of Clinic Services, including Tri-State Minor Care. “Delay of care can add additional strain to a patient. We want our community to know that we will always be there for you if you are in need of medical care.”
