PROSSER, Wash. - People living from Prosser to Zillah now have a new option when it comes to their medical care.
The Adventist Health Medical Clinic, now open at 336 Chardonnay Avenue in Prosser, offers primary care to children and adults.
The clinic is a collaboration between Adventist Health, Kadlec and PMH Medical Center. Directors say the goal of the collaboration is to bring quality primary care to people living in the Lower Valley.
Walla Walla General Hospital, Adventist Health's hospital in the region, owns and operates the clinic, providing support and operational staff. Patients will receive materials related to their care and billing from Adventist Health.
The staff at the clinic includes Kadlec physicians, who provide medical services including the diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic diseases, annual wellness physicals, preventative medicine, in-office procedures, and general healthcare and wellness information.
Staff from PMH Medical Center will perform and manage laboratory services, including phlebotomy, urinalysis, and rapid strep. More advanced lab services will be completed at the PMH Medical Center lab on the hospital campus. Diagnostic services including x-ray, CT scans, ultrasound, mammography, bone density testing, and MRI are supported by PMH Medical Center.
The clinic also says starting in the fall of 2013, patients will be able to access the Adventist Health Community Pharmacy, a retail pharmacy located inside the clinic with a drive-through window.
Patients wishing to make an appointment can call (509) 786-2002.
