Walk-in clinic opens in Port Angeles

Olympic Medical Center staff and the Port Angeles ambassadors commemorate the opening of the Olympic Medical Physicians walk-in clinic in Port Angeles with a ribbon cutting on Feb. 16.

Doing the honors were OMC board president Jim Leskinovitch, OMC CEO Eric Lewis, walk-in clinic medical director Dr. Joel Finman and chief physician officer Dr. Josh Jones.

“This is a big step forward and a long-established goal of our board to increase access to care in our community,” Lewis said.

Olympic Medical Physicians hired eight additional providers and 13 support staff for the clinic.

The clinic, located in the new medical office building at 907 Georgiana St., is open and seeing patients with non-life-threatening injuries or conditions seven days a week from 9 a.m.-6 p.m.

Construction of the adjacent parking lot is expected to be completed in the coming weeks, but parking is available by entering the lot from Washington Street.

Olympic Medical Physicians primary care, general surgery, orthopedics and women’s health along with cardiology, gastroenterology, pulmonology and urology — formerly in the OMP Specialty Clinic building — also have moved into the new building.

An open house and health fair is scheduled for April 22.

Sequim city councilors agreed in late July to extend a moratorium for six months on manufactured home developments so city staff and the planning commission could better analyze the Sequim Municipal Code’s language on private streets.
