SEATTLE, 2017-Aug-22 — /EPR Retail News/ — A new CareClinic by Kaiser Permanente at Bartell Drugs has opened in Redmond, offering more communities access to high-quality, convenient health care. For treatment of minor illness and injury, CareClinic at the Redmond Town Center Bartell Drugs is a new way for people to receive the treatment they need, promptly and at an affordable price.
“Patients come to our CareClinic for quality and convenient care,” said Kaiser Permanente clinician Michael Erickson, CareClinic chief. “We’ve proven that CareClinic locations live up to the promise of quickly diagnosing and treating common ailments. We get you in, taken care of and on your way for an affordable price.”
Kaiser Permanente and Bartell Drugs strive to make excellent health care as accessible and affordable as possible, and CareClinic is no different. The in-store clinics are open to everyone – both Kaiser Permanente members and nonmembers – ages 2 and up. Led by Kaiser Permanente care teams, services include treatment for minor illnesses and injuries, and routine preventive care such as vaccinations. Patients choose whether to have CareClinic work with their insurance plan or pay a flat-fee of just $75 per visit, without insurance
To ensure excellent care, CareClinic clinicians coordinate with the patient’s primary provider to make treatment personalized and precise. Patients who are Kaiser Permanente members can feel confident in knowing that their diagnosis and treatment plans are included in their secure electronic health record and shared with their care teams. For those with other insurance plans, CareClinic providers can share records with the patient’s primary care provider for a seamless care experience.
To celebrate the launch of CareClinic in Redmond, youth physicals for school, sports and activities are just $25. From Aug. 21 to Sept. 10, people can mention the promotion during a visit to any CareClinic to redeem the half-off special.
With the opening at the Redmond Town Center, Kaiser Permanente and Bartell Drugs now operate 15 CareClinics throughout Western Washington, and the network of innovative and effective clinics is poised to continue to grow. These clinics help to further Kaiser Permanente’s mission to provide high-quality, affordable health care services and to improve the health of the communities it serves.
“Bartell Drugs guests have told us they want the ability to get care and treatment as well as everyday necessities in one place,” said John Lewis, director of CareClinic Operations for Bartell Drugs. “That’s why we’re so excited to continue our expansion in order to offer our services to more communities around the region.”
