The Walltown Neighborhood Clinic, a joint program of Lincoln Community Health Center and the Division of Community Health, was designed with the help of multiple community members to meet the health needs of residents in the Walltown community. The clinic, located in a renovated house in the Walltown Neighborhood, is easily accessible to any Durham resident needing care.
Many families are facing difficult financial situations and often don't have medical insurance. The clinic serves all members of the family and offers them a place to get the primary health care that they may need as well as access to health education.
The Walltown Neighborhood Clinic staff includes a family physician, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioner and an office manager. Services include:
- sports physicals
- preventive testing and counseling
- well-baby check-ups
- hearing, vision, dental, and nutrition screenings
- appointments for acute illnesses
- routine immunizations
- some lab testing
- general health education
- mental health assessment
- management of chronic health conditions
- referrals to specialists
Walltown accepts insurance, including Medicaid, Health Choice and Medicare. For patients without insurance, fees are based on income and family size, using Lincoln Community Health Center's sliding scale. After-hours and backup care are provided by Lincoln Community Health Center.
