The Western Missouri Family Healthcare virtual clinic is located at 401 S Locust Street, Sweet Springs inside The Market. It is a completely virtual family practice clinic managing patients’ general health from birth through geriatrics.

A virtual visit allows a patient and provider to discuss healthcare through telecommunications, such as a mobile device or computer. A patients will schedule their appointment through the Concordia clinic and can go to the Sweet Springs location to use our computer or they can login from the comfort of their home using their own device (technology permitting). They will then login to a secure system through our patient portal and get to see a provider on the screen and be assessed.

This is what it means to be a ‘hometown store’ – by working hard to seek out services that truly help our community.”
“This innovative clinic will allow local patients and those in surrounding areas to access a healthcare provider virtually,” said Tara Carlyle, Strategy & Development Executive. “Patients who might otherwise not have access to close care or virtual visits due to limited or slower internet speeds will now get to experience the convenience of telehealth.”
Patients that meet the criteria of a virtual visit can be seen via telehealth in our convenient location inside The Market. To find out if your appointment will qualify for virtual visits, please call (660) 463-7966.
