Health Clinic Opening New Location in Richland

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.- Tri-Cities Community Health will soon be officially opening their newest clinic on Goethals Dr. in Richland.

The clinic is already serving patients as of last month but will celebrate the official grand opening on Thursday, August 29.

Tri-Cities Community Health is a private non-profit health clinic that now has five locations throughout the Tri-Cities.

This clinic in Richland is specially important because about 40 percent of the people who live there and throughout Benton County are at or below 200 percent of the poverty level.

"And the reason we're really excited about this is because WIC services is something that's not currently offered in the City of Richland and so being able to provide this service for those that need assistance is very exciting for us," said Michael Adams, COO, Tri-Cities Community Health.

The clinic serves patients that are both uninsured or under insured. It is about 6,000 square feet, has nine exam rooms and has one medical provider as of right now. They offer mental health and behavioral therapy and hope to add OB and pediatric services soon.
