Potlatch clinic closed Thursday, Nov. 6, and Friday, Nov. 7 for move to new location
Gritman’s Potlatch Clinic will be closed Thursday and Friday as it moves into a brand-new building a block away.
The address of the new Potlatch Family Care clinic is 156 6th St. and Jennifer Davis, PA-C, serves at the clinic. The clinic will open for the first time at is new location at 9 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 10, and maintain regular hours, which are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
“Potlatch deserves a modern, state-of-the-art family clinic and Gritman is pleased to provide one,” said Trisha Quiring, Gritman’s coordinator of rural clinics. “The new clinic is a sign that Gritman is firmly committed to providing high-quality care for rural residents, who are often underserved for health care.”
The clinic will offer a full spectrum of family basic services, including:
• Wellness checks
• Infant to senior care
• Pre-employment physicals, including DOT physicals
• Medicare and Medicaid exams
• Chronic disease managemen
• Pregnancy and reproductive health testing
• Health testing
• Urgent care: coughs and colds, minor cuts and injuries
The new 2,400-square-foot building has three exam rooms and one procedure room and is easier to access than the old location. The upgraded facility will better accommodate both scheduled and walk-in appointments and offer better privacy. Associated Architects, LLP designed the building and Sprenger Construction built it.
Gritman has invested in upgrading its clinics recently. In addition to Potlatch, Gritman operates Family Care Clinics in Kendrick and Troy. The Troy Clinic was remodeled June 2012. The Kendrick Clinic moved into their newly-remodeled building in December 2013.
