Preventive Care for Every Age: Staying Healthy Through All Walks of Life

From childhood through the golden years, proactive healthcare measures can help prevent illness, detect diseases early, and promote overall wellness. At Burnett Medical Center (BMC), we understand that each stage of life presents unique health challenges and opportunities. That's why we're committed to providing comprehensive preventive care services tailored to individuals of All Walks of Life

Infancy and Childhood:

In infancy and childhood, preventive care lays the foundation for a lifetime of good health. Regular pediatric check-ups, vaccinations, and developmental screenings are crucial during this stage to ensure proper growth and development. At BMC, our family practice providers work closely with parents to provide personalized care and guidance, addressing any concerns and promoting healthy habits from an early age. Scheduling a Well Child Exam at BMC is essential to monitor your child's health and development as they grow. Learn more about our Well Child Exam services HERE.

Adolescence and Young Adulthood:

As adolescents and young adults navigate through these transformative years, prioritizing preventive care remains crucial for their overall well-being. Beyond childhood, regular physical exams, including sports physicals to ensure fitness for athletic participation, and gynecology care for young women, become increasingly important. At BMC, our healthcare providers specialize in confidential, compassionate care specifically tailored to the unique needs of teenagers and young adults, empowering them to proactively manage their health and make informed decisions about their wellness journey.


In adulthood, preventive care becomes increasingly important for managing chronic conditions, preventing disease, and promoting longevity. Regular screenings for conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, and cancer, as well as vaccinations and lifestyle modifications, are key components of preventive care for adults. Whether you're navigating a chronic condition or prioritizing overall wellness, the healthcare team at BMC is committed to supporting you at every stage of your journey.

Senior Years:

As we age, preventive care becomes even more critical for maintaining quality of life and independence. Regular health assessments, screenings for age-related conditions such as osteoporosis and cognitive decline, and immunizations are essential for seniors. Additionally, preventive measures such as fall prevention strategies and medication management can help older adults stay healthy and active. Our Continuing Care Center provides long-term care and rehabilitation services, while our Adult Day Services offer a supportive environment for seniors who need daytime care. Additionally, we partner with local Hospice Services to provide compassionate end-of-life care for individuals facing terminal illness, ensuring comfort and dignity in their final days.
