Kaweah Delta is preparing to open its second urgent care facility on Monday. This clinic, located at 3600 W. Flagstaff Ave., will help serve the health care needs of the local community and combat overcrowding of the busy emergency department.
“This is just one of the ways we are working to reduce overcrowding in the emergency department at Kaweah Delta,” said John Leal, director of Kaweah Delta’s Urgent Care Clinics. “We are giving our community members another option where they can go if they are sick and need non-emergency care and their doctor is unavailable.”
Like the first clinic, this new location will have 14 patient rooms and will provide care for general illnesses. The location will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week, offering on-site radiology, lab services, and levels of care ranging from physicals to workers’ compensation.
Construction on the $4-million project started last summer and was completed in May, receiving state approval this week to open. Funding came from the $100-million revenue bonds sold by Kaweah Delta in 2015. Principal and interest are to be repaid to bond holders from revenues received by Kaweah Delta for providing patient care services.
