New clinic opens July 31 in Snoqualmie Ridge Bartell Drugs location

CareClinic by Kaiser Permanente at Bartell Drugs opens Monday, July 31 at 35013 Snoqualmie Parkway, providing Snoqualmie and eastside residents with access to high-quality, convenient health care. This clinic will provide treatment for minor illness and injuries, as well as preventive services from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., seven days a week.

“Patients come to our CareClinics for quality and convenient care,” said Kaiser Permanente clinician Michael Erickson, CareClinic chief. “We’ve proven that CareClinics 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.”

CareClinics are open to both Kaiser Permanente members and nonmembers, ages 2 and up. The clinic can bill insurance, or uninsured patients can pay $75 per visit. Services include treatment for minor illnesses and injuries, and routine preventive care such as vaccinations.

Diagnosis and treatment information for clinic patients who are Kaiser Permanente members will be stored with their electronic health records. Patients with other insurance plans can ask to have their records shared with their primary care providers.

Kaiser Permanente and Bartell Drugs operate 14 CareClinic locations and plan to add two more by the end of the year. An additional location is set to open in August, at the Redmond Town Center Bartell Drugs.

“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.”
