  • COVID-19 Testing
  • Vaccinations
  • Sports Physicals
  • Annual Check-Ups
  • Routine Primary Care
  • Well Child Visits
  • Sick Visits

“Preventive care is huge in this neighborhood. There’s a lot of people who go without,” said A+ Charter Superintendent and CEO Dr. Brenton White. Foremost Chief Nursing Officer Xaquita Wicks adds, “The value of seeing family members, in addition to staff members, is that if we can start educating everyone – the sooner, the better and that’s moving along the lines of prevention.”
