Crawford Memorial Hospital may still be under coronavirus restrictions, but that hasn’t stopped it from adding a new service.
CMH has opened a new walk-in clinic as part of its continued mission to bring more healthcare access to the community.
The Walk-in Clinic is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday and Sunday in Suite 400 of the Robinson Rural Health Clinic.
Appointments are not necessary. In fact, they won’t be accepted. This will be a permanent clinic and is not part of the hospital’s COVID-19 pandemic response.
“Our patients and families are busier than ever and can’t always make the time to see one of our providers during traditional business hours,” said CMH Chief Practice Management Officer Sandy Steffey.
“Our goal was to build off the success of our existing Saturday Clinic and increase our hours even more,” Steffey added. “This clinic has been in the works for months and we are excited about its future.”
Nurse practitioners Kristen Walk and Melissa Wise will be the clinic’s providers.
“They are new additions to our medical staff and they have fit right in to our team,” Steffey said. “Our patients love them.”
Since coronavirus restrictions are still in place, patients are asked to call the clinic at 544-2500 when they arrive and they will be let inside as social distancing and capacity limits allow. Some patients may be asked to wait in their vehicles.
Once the virus restrictions are lifted, patients will be able to walk in as normal.
