New Immediate Care Clinic Open in Sunnyside

Posted: Updated:

SUNNYSIDE, Wash. - The Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic is opening a new Immediate Care Clinic in Sunnyside. 

The Clinic says the new facility's services will include treatment for rashes, minor burns and injuries, ear infections, colds, sore throats, sprains, as well as flu shots and immunizations. Life-threatening injuries will still need to be treated at the closest emergency room. 

"We have 6,500 patients who live in Sunnyside that use our Grandview clinics and several thousand more that travel to Toppenish for care there," said Carlos Olivares, CEO of Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic. "It's simply sound community health to consider how far they need to go when seeking care for a cut or a cold." 

YVFWC hopes to alleviate the stress put on emergency rooms by creating a clinic where people can go when their injuries or ailments are not life threatening. 

In September, the clinic will add another provider, a procedure room and an x-ray machine, which will give workers the ability to set breaks and fractures. 

Clinic hours are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.

Sunnyside Immediate Care is located at 2680 Yakima Valley Hwy, Suite B in Sunnyside.
