For the next three weeks, the Samaritan Pacific Walk-in Clinic in Newport will see patients in a temporary location inside the SamCare Mobile Medicine bus, parked at the south end of Samaritan Pacific Communities Hospital on 9th Street. Patients should check in for an appointment inside the hospital at the south entrance. The clinic is open weekdays, from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and on weekends, 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
The walk-in clinic will be in this location until Tuesday, Dec. 18, while the clinic’s modular unit is disassembled, moved and reassembled in a new location next to the Center for Health Education. The clinic will open in that more permanent location on Thursday, Dec. 20.
In addition to the temporary mobile medicine bus, patients needing walk-in care on weekdays can also use the Samaritan Waldport Clinic, 920 SW Range Drive, in Waldport, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Samaritan Depoe Bay Clinic, 531 N. Hwy. 101, in Depoe Bay, from 2 to 5 p.m.
The walk-in clinic’s modular building must be moved because it is currently sitting in the middle of what will soon be a construction zone. Once the clinic is moved to the parking lot of the Center for Health Education, it will remain there for at least a year while the second phase of construction on the new hospital takes place.
