William Cannon offers services Monday through Saturday (closed holidays), from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm. During office hours, please contact your home office first to see if we can get you in before going to a walk-in location.
Our goal is to provide immediate care services in support of your home clinic by accepting overflow patients.

Who Can Use the Walk-In Services?
If you have Medicare or Medicaid, you are eligible to use services at these sites. Patients who are already in our system may also use these services. This includes patients with Medicare or Medicaid, those in the Medical Assistance Program (MAP), CHIP and sliding fee schedule patients. Staff is also on site to help determine whether someone qualifies to become a patient in our system.
How Do I Use the Walk-In Services?
During the Day - Monday through Friday
If you are ill or have a minor injury during normal office hours, please contact your CommUnityCare primary care provider. If that office cannot get you in that day, they will refer you to one of our two walk-in locations.
Weekends and After-Hours
For after hours or evening illness or minor injury, CommUnityCare patients may go to either the Hancock or William Cannon office to receive care for an acute need but non emergency need. Patients are seen on a first-come, first-serve basis. Our goal is to help you avoid unnecessary trips to the emergency room.
