TOWNSEN MEMORIALINFECTIOUS DISEASES
INFECTIOUS DISEASES IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD
We have all caught a flu or cold and some point in our lives, and while catching some infectious diseases may be common, they can also wreak havoc on our bodies making us feel ill and unable to go through the day as we normally would. At Townsen Memorial Hospital and Emergency Room, our physicians are experienced at diagnosing and treating a vast number of infectious diseases, getting you back up on your feet in no time.
Many infections such as the common cold, an ear infection, or strep throat can be treated using over the counter medication; however, it is recommended that you come in for a check-up if the ailment is completely debilitating or continues to persist even with over the counter medication. Young children are also more susceptible to infectious diseases so it is encouraged that they come to the hospital as soon as possible if the illness continues or worsens. If left untreated, a simple illness may progress into something much more serious. At Townsen Memorial Hospital and Emergency Room, we offer a variety of medications from our on-site pharmacy, accept most insurance plans, and offer treatments for infectious diseases such as:
- Common cold
- Stomach flu
