Strawberry Wilderness Community Clinic (SWCC)
offers a wide variety of services to children and
families. We provide care during infancy, childhood,
adolescence, and adulthood including pregnancy and
end of life care. Check-ups and healthy activities can be
very helpful at each stage of life and we hope to help
you maintain lifelong health.
Rearing children is a joy but can be overwhelming and
regular visits to your doctor are recommended to assist
you in caring for your child in the best way possible.
Your child’s first visit is 3-5 days after birth to be
weighed and check in to determine how we might be
able to assist you during this time of transition. Well
child visits occur often in the first years of life as
children grow and change rapidly - typically at 2, 4, 6,

In addition to age related healthy activities, health and
safety is also affected by the season. During the
winter months it is important to take steps to keep
your family free of illness or injury. You can do this
by getting flu shots, participating in winter exercise
activities such as sledding or skiing, practicing good
hand washing, and putting a safety gate around each
wood stove or heating device.
Your family’s physical, mental, and emotional health
is important and the providers at Strawberry
Wilderness Community Clinic are here to help. For
established patients, we offer walk in appointments
for vaccinations and developmental screenings and
same day urgent care appointments for illness and
injury. We are available to assist you with any health
related concerns you might have and look forward to
working with you to create a healthier community.
