The SEIB State Wellness Center is a healthcare facility conveniently located in downtown Montgomery offering a variety of services to state and local government employees and their dependents covered by the State Employees’ Health Insurance Plan (SEHIP) and Local Government Health Insurance Plan (LGHIP). Our mission is to provide a convenient, economical source of urgent/acute care and preventative care services when you cannot get in to see your primary healthcare provider. Our team of medical professionals is dedicated to providing you with the highest quality care and excellent service while also encouraging a continued relationship with your personal physician.

When you visit the State Wellness Center, you receive personalized care based on your medical needs. Our urgent/acute care team consists of board-certified physicians and nurse practitioners that can see you for a variety of medical concerns. The Wellness Center offers fast and convenient care for conditions like ear infections, minor wounds, flu, strep throat, allergies, and skin conditions (eg. inor rashes, poison ivy, etc.). The Wellness Center can also assess you if you have received a referral for further evaluation from your annual Healthwatch screening. To ensure that you receive comprehensive care, a clinical pharmacist is always a part of our interdisciplinary team, and can provide individual consultation regarding any of your prescribed or over-the-counter medications.

Along with our commitment to providing fast and convenient urgent/acute care services, the State Wellness Center offers a variety of preventative health services and disease management programs provided by our clinical pharmacy care team. The State Wellness Center’s pharmacists are experienced medication and disease management experts that can work closely with your healthcare provider to guarantee that you receive the best medical care possible. We are dedicated to spending time with you to make sure that you understand your medical conditions, why you are prescribed certain medications, how to properly take your medications, what to expect from your medications, and when you should report to your healthcare provider for further evaluation.
