The American Red Cross Nebraska/SW Iowa/Kansas Region serves the more than 4 million people living in Nebraska, Kansas, and three counties in Southwest Iowa that are part of the Omaha metropolitan area. The Region provides vital services to the area 365 days a year—from responding to home fires in local neighborhoods to teaching first aid and CPR to community groups.
We’re able to provide these services thanks to a corps of more than 4,000 dedicated volunteers and the generosity of our donors. The American Red Cross puts these donations to good use. The Red Cross is not a government agency and relies on donations of time, money and blood to do its work. An average of 91 cents of every dollar the Red Cross spends is invested in humanitarian services and programs.
How do we do it? By practicing what we preach: preparedness. We train our volunteers. We plan ahead for the types of disasters that strike in our community. And we train individuals, businesses and community groups so they too, can be prepared.

Thank you for choosing Utica Family Medical Center. The following information will assist you in getting the most out of your patient visit.
Our regular office hours are from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Call before 9 a.m. to schedule a same-day appointment for urgent care and sick care.
We understand that no one plans to be sick. So when urgent visits become necessary, we will make every effort to find a time that will minimize your wait. In the interest of time, it may be necessary to schedule your appointment with another medical provider. It is always helpful if you call in advance of your visit to the clinic.
It is helpful to schedule your routine and annual check-ups well in advance. This allows adequate time with your physician.
To provide better patient care, we do not interrupt our physicians during patient visits to answer calls from pharmacies. Therefore, it is unlikely that your local pharmacist will be able to renew your prescription while you wait. If you need a prescription renewed, please contact your pharmacist in advance.
Most patients on maintenance medications require periodic follow-up with a physician. Please ask your doctor how often you should come in for follow-up care.
Having access to your patient records allows us to provide the best response to telephone inquiries. When you call, our clinic receptionist will ask for a brief reason for your call and will obtain your name and phone number. She will then route your question to your physician's nurse who will return your call as promptly as possible.
Please contact MHCS Clinic Administrator, at 402-646-4622 for additional information.
