The Providence Medical Group in Southwest Washington will be adding an immediate care clinic to its Britton Plaza location, 2555 Marvin Road NE (which currently houses Hawks Prairie Family Medicine, Hawks Prairie Internal Medicine, and Olympia Endocrinology). Plans call for the clinic to open this fall.
“In the two past years, we have opened immediate care clinics in West Olympia and Lacey, and both have been highly utilized,” said Providence Chief Executive Officer in Southwest Washington Medrice Coluccio. “This will provide our community another option to receive the right care, in the right place, at the right time.”
Both the West Olympia and Lacey immediate care clinics see about 50-60 patients each day, and have seen as many as 100 in a day during the recent flu season. The Hawks Prairie clinic will have capacity to do the same. The new clinic will add approximately six new providers – physicians, physician’s assistants and ARNPs – for a total of about 25 new caregivers, including medical assistants, nurses, clinical technicians and more.
Included in the services will be the addition of a Computerized Axial Tomography (CAT) scanner to the diagnostic imaging services already available in Hawks Prairie.
“This will allow easier access to diagnostic imaging services outside the hospital setting,” said Coluccio. “This entire project continues our commitment to provide high-quality health care – close to home – for our community.”
Endocrinology, South Sound Internal Medicine to move
To make room for the immediate care clinic, Olympia Endocrinology will move from Hawks Prairie to 3425 Ensign Road NE Suite 220, the current home of Providence Medical Group South Sound Internal Medicine, which will be moving to 525 Lilly Road NE Suite 250, to join with Providence Medical Group East Olympia Family Medicine. The two practices will combine to form Providence Medical Group East Olympia Family and Internal Medicine.
- South Sound Internal Medicine will move and join East Olympia in June
- Endocrinology will move into the South Sound Internal Medicine space in July
- Construction will start on the Immediate Care clinic in July, with target opening date of early fall
“Thanks to our dedicated team throughout Southwest, this necessary project will be moving forward,” said Coluccio.
