Preventive Care


Preventive Care at Mercy

Living your best life means staying healthy. Preventive health care helps keep you well with annual checkups that can spot concerns early and help you make healthy life choices. We’re here to keep you and your family healthy by providing various preventive care services at every age and stage of life.

Preventive Care Services

Regular Physical Exams

Health screenings and physical exams can give your provider valuable insight into your health history and condition. Your doctor may recommend certain health screenings or other preventive services based on these insights.

Adult Vaccinations

Adults need immunizations to protect their health and prevent the spread of illness. Mercy offers recommended vaccines for adults, including the seasonal flu and travel vaccinations, making it easy for you to keep up-to-date and on schedule. Your doctor can assess your risk and recommend the best course of treatment.

Childhood Vaccines

Pediatric vaccinations and immunizations protect your child from vaccine-preventable illnesses. Talk to your Mercy pediatrician about your child's vaccination schedule.

Physicals for Sports

Mercy offers sports physicals to help your child start the season right and avoid potential health issues. A sports physical can give you the confidence to know your child is ready to play.  

Why is Preventive Care Important?

For adults who already feel healthy, taking the time to have an annual physical with a primary care provider is a low priority. However, preventive health care can have the most significant impact on long-term health. A doctor’s visit can help you learn about your risk factors and any issues before they become serious.

Preventive wellness, including annual checkups with your primary care physician, is covered by most insurance plans. Mercy makes it easy to access preventive health services with the following:
