Family medicine and primary care

Your well-being depends on a healthy relationship with your family doctor. At Humboldt General Hospital, we know how important this relationship is. That's why we offer many options for primary care. You're sure to find a general practitioner who is right for you.

Primary care services for the whole family

At HGH, you'll find a variety of physicians and nurse practitioners who provide expert care. Whether you're looking for prenatal, pediatric, or adult care, HGH has you covered.

Everyone at HGH is focused on your family's well-being. Our team includes experienced primary care doctors. We have specialists in areas like pediatrics and obstetrics. And our compassionate nurses have been serving our community for a long time. We build lasting relationships with our patients and are with you through every life stage.

All of our primary care providers share the same goal: to make sure our community has access to medical care. Our services are part of a federal program that facilitates care through Medicaid and Medicare.

Skilled family medicine residents

Some of HGH's providers are resident physicians. This is thanks to a partnership with the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. The residents spend two years after medical school graduation at HGH's Family Medicine Residency Clinic.

These family medicine residents are licensed to practice medicine. They can be your primary care physician, prescribe medications, deliver babies, and more. And while the resident physicians change, the care remains consistent.
