Kaweah Delta will host an open house on Wednesday, July 25, for its second urgent care in Visalia. Set to open this fall this second Kaweah Delta Urgent Care will help serve the healthcare needs of the community and reduce overcrowding in one of the busiest emergency departments in the state.
“This is just one of the ways we are working to reduce overcrowding in the emergency department at Kaweah Delta,” said John Leal, Director of Kaweah Delta’s Urgent Care Clinics. “We are giving our community another option where they can go if they are sick and need non-emergency care and their doctor is unavailable.”
An open house with tours will take place from 5-7pm on Wednesday, July 25, at Kaweah Delta Urgent Care, 3600 W. Flagstaff Ave., just north of Demaree Street and Riggin Avenue, in Visalia.
Like Kaweah Delta Urgent Care at 1633 S. Court St., the second urgent care location has 14 patient rooms, and provides care for general illnesses, offering everything from physicals to workers’ compensation care. The new location will also be open seven days a week, have on-site radiology, lab services, and will offer the community popular features such as the ability to check wait times online and check in from home.
Construction on the $4 million project began in summer 2017 and was completed in May; Kaweah Delta is waiting for state approval to open. This project was funded by proceeds from the $100 million revenue bonds sold by Kaweah Delta in December 2015. Principal and interest will be repaid to bond holders from revenues received by Kaweah Delta for providing patient care services.
The new Kaweah Delta Urgent Care is open seven days a week from 8am to 8pm at 3600 W. Flagstaff Ave., just north of Demaree Street and Riggin Avenue, in Visalia. Walk-in patients are welcome. Most insurances are accepted. For more information, visit www.kaweahdelta.org/urgentcare.
