Everything you need in one place

Family medicine

We offer a comprehensive range of primary care services that focus on your long-term health and preventive care. Your primary care provider will get to know you so they’re better equipped to prevent, treat and manage any health issues that may come up. The best part?

Pharmacy @ The Center is conveniently located in the Vermeer Health Services building to get your prescriptions to you faster and easier. Our pharmacists take the time to get to know you and work with your primary care provider to support your overall health. They’ll not only fill your prescriptions but will work with you to manage your medications and conditions. 

Unlike your usual big-box pharmacy, we offer a wide range of services that go beyond simply prescribing and monitoring medications. We can provide personal health counseling, and disease or medication-specific education, as well as easy prescription transfers and low-cost generics for you and your eligible dependents. We also offer mail order and auto-refill prescription services. Ask your pharmacist about how to get signed up.

Call your pharmacy at (641) 628–3738 to get started.

Travel medicine

At Wellness @ The Center, we offer travel medicine services to help you and your family plan for your trip and to stay well while you’re away. Based on your destination, things like getting vaccinated, refilling your prescriptions and discussing health risks with your provider can make or break your travel experience.

Our travel medicine services include pre-travel risk assessment, prescriptions and vaccinations based on destination, risk reduction planning and education for self-treatment, as well as post-travel assessments and treatment, or specialist referral.

Women's health

Women have unique healthcare needs. Our providers spend time getting to know you, or the women in your life, to best understand your health goals. They’ll come up with a personalized care plan to support your long-term health.

Along with general primary care services, we offer the following specifically for women’s health: breast cancer screenings, pregnancy testing, contraception counseling, STD testing and counseling, cervical cancer screenings, counseling for interpersonal and domestic violence, comprehensive family care, and education for self-awareness. Women’s health services are available for all Vermeer employees and eligible dependents.

Condition management

You don’t have to navigate your health alone. With our condition management services, you and your family can get the support you need to manage your conditions and take control of your health. Our providers will come up with personalized treatment strategies to help you make positive lifestyle changes to prevent, improve, manage or even reverse certain health issues.

Our treatment plans are tailored to meet your unique needs and can address a range of conditions, such as asthma, high blood pressure, diabetes and pre-diabetes, low back pain and more. We can provide one-on-one coaching, disease specific education, self-care training and condition management tactics, diet guidelines and physical activity goals, medication counseling and preventive and ongoing monitoring to manage your conditions and help you and your family stay well.


Vaccines are an essential part of public health. You have convenient access to many vaccines at Wellness @ The Center. Your provider can determine which ones are right for you and your family based on your age, conditions, travel habits and other factors. You can then easily schedule an appointment or simply walk in to get your vaccines.

We offer a variety of routine vaccines to protect your health and our community, including Influenza, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), MMR, Pneumococcal, Tdap/Td, and Zoster.

For information and updates on the COVID-19 vaccine, as well as other ways your wellness center can support you through the pandemic, please visit your COVID-19 resource page.

Lab services

To support you and your family’s needs, we offer clinical lab services that include onsite testing and specimen collections for offsite processing. Our turnaround time for processing routine lab tests is typically 24 to 48 hours. You can receive your results electronically through your My Premise Health patient portal or during an in-person or virtual follow-up appointment with your provider.

We can perform and process the following lab tests onsite: glucose or lipid testing, hemoglobin A1C, rapid strep testing, influenza testing, urine pregnancy testing, urine dip screenings and rapid mono testing. We also offer COVID-19 testing through your virtual care benefits. The kit is sent to your door through our lab services partner, Quest Diagnostics, and results come back within 72 hours.* Simply schedule a virtual visit to get started.

*Turnaround time for results is subject to national trends and case surges.

It’s easier than ever to get the care you need.

You can get the same great care you receive at your wellness center, virtually, either online or over the phone. This safe and convenient option gives you the flexibility to schedule a virtual appointment with your trusted provider during your center’s regular business hours, at the same cost as an in-person visit. Get the care you need at home, in the office or on the go.

Here are a few reasons you might need to book a virtual visit:*

  • Follow-up appointment or to review test results
  • Cough, fever or sore throat
  • Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea
  • Cold, flu, COVID-19 or allergy symptoms
  • Stomachache, headache or earache

*To conduct a local virtual visit, you must be in the same state in which your provider is licensed.

Members are what we call our patients who are eligible to use a wellness center operated by Premise Health. It’s not a membership that you have to pay for or apply to be a part of. You’re simply considered a member once your employer has partnered with us to provide your health and wellness services.

A wellness center is where you receive care as a member. We use this term versus the typical “doctor’s office” because we offer so much more than the usual office environment. Our centers not only typically offer more services than the average doctor’s office, but are also designed with you in mind, so you feel comfortable, calm and welcomed.
