Crescent Medical Clinic resumes appointment-only visits, Willamette NOW Immediate Care re-opens as Respiratory Care clinic
Background: During the “Stay at Home” order and Phase 1, Oregon Medical Group’s Crescent Medical Clinic became a dedicated site for any patients exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19. Providers working at that clinic worked from other locations during that time. The Willamette NOW Immediate Care was temporarily closed because no walk-in patients were being seen.
On Friday June 12, our Willamette NOW location will become Oregon Medical Group’s dedicated care location for patients with symptoms of COVID-19. It will be open from 10 am to 6 pm, seven days a week. Outdoor COVID-19 testing will remain at Crescent Medical Clinic.
Besides the dedicated outdoor testing area, Crescent Medical Clinic will resume appointment-only care visits, welcoming primary care and pediatrics back to the clinic beginning Monday, June 15. The After Hours clinic that is co-located with Crescent will open for general patient care (not COVID-19 symptoms) on Saturday, June 13. Aggressive and complete sanitation and sterilization processes will be completed to both spaces before they re-open to patients.
All Oregon Medical Group clinics, including our NOW Immediate Care Clinics, are NOT ACCEPTING walk-in patients of any kind.
“We appreciate OMG patients’ understanding during this time of change. Their flexibility and willingness to be seen at another clinic was critical to our ability to care for patients safely,” says Chief Medical Officer Stacy Chance.
