New express clinic in Port Townsend to open Monday

PORT TOWNSEND — Jefferson Healthcare slated Monday as the opening day for its new Express Clinic.

The clinic will provide another option for non-emergent, same-day services and treatment for minor illnesses, injuries, infections and allergies.

It will be open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily to provide services on a first-come, first-served basis at 834 Sheridan St. Patients can access the clinic on the north side of the building, through the green doors, near the emergency department entrance.

The new clinic is part of the overall plan for Jefferson Healthcare to meet growing medical demands.

“We are excited about the Express Clinic for our community, demand for services has been growing at such a high rate we have struggled to serve our community efficiently,” Mary Feeney, director of emergency department and express clinic, said in a news release.

“The added Express Clinic providers, as well as the seven new providers in primary care, will help us provide the right care for our community”, said Feeney.

Three new providers, one registered nurse and one technician will staff the clinic.

Services in the clinic will be billed at the same rate as services in the primary care clinic, according to a news release.

Patients are not required to be an established patient through the primary care clinic to be seen in the clinic, according to the release.

However, patients with an established primary care provider at Jefferson Healthcare are encouraged to contact their primary care provider for same-day services within the primary care clinics. For more information, call 360-385-2200 or visit www.jeffersonhealthcare.org.
