Caring for you and your family, every step of the way.
Your health care is about much more than simply taking care of you when you are sick. Alliance Coal wants you and your loved ones to stay as healthy as possible. To help accomplish this, we have Health Clinics offered on-site at most mine and office locations. Improve Health Clinics delivers care that goes beyond vital signs, lab work, and medications. We want to develop relationships with you and your family and provide a comprehensive approach to your care.
From checkups and routine health care to the treatment of chronic conditions and day-to-day ailments, our doctors and nurse practitioners want to play a role in helping you navigate your health care needs. We offer dedicated time to not only discuss the management of acute problems and chronic disease but also to develop strategies to improve your overall health. We can do this at the convenience of your site clinic or through telemedicine within the comfort of your home. Some of the services available to you and your family include:
- Basic preventative care including – vital sign checks– cardiovascular risk evaluation – smoking cessation counseling – obesity counseling – physical exams such as sports/school exams – routine vaccines
- Diagnosis and treatment of health conditions such as asthma, anxiety, COPD, depression, diabetes, elevated cholesterol, GERD, hypertension
- Screenings for mental health disorders, substance abuse, colorectal cancer, prostate, cervical, and breast cancer
- Health education, specialty referrals, and care coordination
There is no office visit copay and some over-the-counter medications are stocked and available at no cost to you. Appointments are encouraged but not required.
The on-site Health Clinics are staffed by a licensed medical doctor or a licensed nurse practitioner. All our clinical providers are educated and experienced in providing family medicine services including physical examination, ordering lab and radiology tests, diagnosis of health issues, and multi-modal treatment (lifestyle and non-pharmacologic interventions as well as prescription medications.)
