After-Hours Care

At the Alliance, we are here to help you. As your partner in health, we strive to connect you to the right care at the right time. If you have a health concern, please call your doctor any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Your Doctor

Call your doctor’s office or clinic for advice. Doctors expect to get phone calls at night and on weekends. They set up their practices to receive your calls at times when they are not open. Your doctor can help you decide if you really need to go to the emergency room, or can give you advice about what you can do at home to help get you or your child through the night or weekend.
