Children and teens also can receive medical care in Hillsdale at Center for Family Health –Hillsdale, 240 W. Carleton Rd.  The Center operates four school centers in Jackson County. Young patients who usually see a pediatrician at the downtown location also can use the school health centers or can use the school health centers as their primary medical-care office.

When you are unable to get an appointment with your child’s regular doctor, you can take your child to the Walk-In Clinic at the downtown facility.
