Walk-in medical clinic opens Tuesday

Valley View Health Center will open its sixth health center Tuesday - a walk-in clinic in Centralia at the east entrance of the Providence Medical Plaza next to the hospital on Cooks Hill Road.

In a collaboration with Providence Centralia Hospital, the clinic will be a walk-in center, open seven days a week, and is geared toward patients who have been using the emergency department of the hospital for their “chronic care needs,” according to a news release.

The facility is on the east side of Providence Centralia Hospital at 1800 Cooks Hill Road, Suite F, and can be reached at 360-736-3042.

In an ongoing effort to provide access to under-insured or uninsured customers, Valley View is planning to open a medical and dental clinic in Raymond in Pacific County next year, according to the release.
