Need Care When We are Closed?

Start with Your Medical Home

If you are a current medical patient at Goodwin Community Health, Families First or Lilac City Pediatrics, you always have access to your health care team. Unless you have a true emergency, please call our community health centers in Portsmouth and Somersworth first. You can reach us 24/7.

Day or night, your medical home is the best place to start. Our after-hours nurse will help you decide if you should go to an urgent-care center or the ER. We also have a doctor on call for you.

    How

    Just call our main number and listen to instructions for how to speak with a nurse.

    When our health centers are open

    • Same-day or next-day appointments offered Monday-Friday for current patients. Call ahead to schedule.
    • Early-morning and early-evening appointments may be available.
    • Telehealth visits are offered every weekday and also on Saturday mornings

    A Note to Dental Patients at Our Health Centers

    If you are experiencing extreme pain or possible infection, go to the Emergency Department at your nearest hospital. If not an emergency, call our main number and follow the prompts for the Dental Center and leave a message. We will return your call on the next business day.

    When to go to the Emergency Room OR Call 9-1-1

    Unnecessary ER visits or 9-1-1 calls waste your time and money. So use the ER or 9-1-1 only in emergencies, such as:

    • Life-threatening or disabling conditions
    • Chest pain; numbness in the face, arm or leg; difficulty speaking
    • Severe shortness of breath
    • High fever with stiff neck, mental confusion or difficulty breathing
    • Sudden or unexplained loss of consciousness
    • Coughing up or vomiting blood
    • Possible broken bones
    • Cut or wound that won’t stop bleeding

    When to go to Urgent Care or Walk-In Clinics

    Any time of the day or night, your first call except in an emergency should be to your health care team at at Families First, Goodwin or Lilac City Pediatrics.

    When your health center is open

    Walk-in and Urgent Care Centers are not a good alternative to seeing your primary care provider. They cost more, and the providers there don’t know you or your health history.

    When your health center is not open

    When you call us, our after-hours nurse will help you decide if you need to be seen right away. If your issue can’t wait until we are open, the nurse may suggest you go to urgent care or a walk-in clinic. When visiting a Walk-in Clinic, Urgent Care Center or the ER, call ahead if possible. Tell them you are a patient at Families First, Goodwin or Lilac City Pediatrics.
