Ambulatory Care Q&A

What is ambulatory care?

Ambulatory care is medical care you receive on an outpatient basis. That means you come in for an appointment, get the care you need, and leave the very same day. It’s different from inpatient care, which involves an overnight stay in a hospital or long-term care facility. 


Most of the medical care you get throughout life, including primary, preventive, and chronic care, is in an ambulatory setting. Even outside of your primary care clinic, you can receive ambulatory care at other facilities, like dialysis clinics or rehab centers. 


Arbor Mental Health & Family Medical Center LLC offers a wide range of ambulatory services you get by appointment. Even when an office visit isn’t possible, you can access your primary care provider with telehealth virtual visits.
