Lake Chelan Community Hospital and Clinics Brings Back Renewed and Expanded Walk-In Clinic Services for the Lake Chelan Valley
August 21, 2020 – Lake Chelan Community Hospital & Clinics (LCCHC) has made the difficult decision to discontinue offering primary care services and bring back a renewed and expanded walk-in clinic, as well as expand specialties offered in our community. The new Express Care clinic that is expected to open by the end of 2020 will offer in-person and telehealth evening and weekend services, including select holidays, Monday through Friday 9am-8pm and Saturday and Sunday from 9am-3pm.
Data has shown us that Lake Chelan Valley would greatly benefit from an expanded Express Care clinic that will provide access to care after hours and on weekends. We understand many patients have been with Lake Chelan Clinic since its inception and finding a new primary care provider may be an emotional process. We are here to help you through the transition and answer any questions you may have.
Providers will continue to see patients in the primary care clinic located on 219 E. Johnson through the end of October 2020. In its place, Specialty Care clinics will provide services at this location, including Orthopedics, General Surgery, Podiatry, and Anticoagulation (INR). We are excited to expand our services to include Infusion Therapy, Wound Care, Gynecology, and Ophthalmology. LCCHC is also exploring the addition of Cardiology, Chronic Pain, and Dermatology. Our goal at Lake Chelan Community Hospital and Clinics is to save you time by bringing the services you need to you.
If you have established care with one of our providers at the clinic or seen a provider only once, you will receive a letter in the mail notifying you of their last day with Lake Chelan Clinic. Once you establish care with a new primary care provider, please call the Health Information Management department at (509) 726-6013 to transfer your medical records, free of charge.
We are here to help you through the transition and answer any questions you may have. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to Administration at 509-682-8501.
