High-quality and convenient health care services now available seven days a week at 13 CareClinics across Western Washington
CareClinic by Kaiser Permanente at Bartell Drugs has opened at 5500 Olympic Drive, providing Gig Harbor and Key Peninsula residents with access to high-quality, convenient health care to get them well and on their way. This new location will provide treatment for minor illness and injuries, as well as preventive services from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., seven days a week.
“Patients come to our CareClinics for quality and convenient care,” said Kaiser Permanente clinician Michael Erickson, CareClinic chief. “We’ve proven that CareClinics live up to the promise of quickly diagnosing and treating common ailments. We get you in, taken care of and on your way for an affordable price.”
CareClinics are open to everyone – both Kaiser Permanente members and nonmembers – ages 2 and up. They can bill your insurance plan or the cost is just $75 per visit for those without health coverage. Led by Kaiser Permanente care teams, services include treatment for minor illnesses and injuries, and routine preventive care such as vaccinations.
CareClinic patients who are Kaiser Permanente members can feel confident in knowing that their diagnosis and treatment plans are included in their secure electronic health record and shared with their care teams, allowing for a more coordinated care. For those with other insurance plans, CareClinic can also share your records with your primary care provider for a seamless care experience.
Kaiser Permanente and Bartell Drugs now operate 13 CareClinic locations and plan to add two more by the end of the year. These clinics help to further Kaiser Permanente’s mission to provide high-quality, affordable health care services and to improve the health of the communities it serves.
The two additional CareClinic locations planned for 2017 include:
- Snoqualmie Ridge – summer 2017
- Redmond Town Center – summer 2017
“Bartell Drugs guests have told us they want the ability to get care and treatment as well as everyday necessities in one place,” said John Lewis, director of CareClinic Operations for Bartell Drugs. “That’s why we’re so excited to continue our expansion in order to offer our services to more communities around the region.”
