KVH Urgent Care – Cle Elum is moving to their new location on Monday, January 8, 2018. In order to provide uninterrupted coverage for our patients services will cease at their current location at 201 Alpha Way in Cle Elum at 10:00 p.m. on January 7 and will resume at 10:00 a.m. on January 8 at 214 W. 1st Street in downtown Cle Elum.
The Urgent Care clinic’s new location is in the building that previously held Swedish Cle Elum Primary Care. The building on 1st Street will provide a location that is better suited for an urgent care facility. The move is part of an agreement between Kittitas County Public Hospital District No. 2, Kittitas Valley Healthcare, and Swedish Health Services that will allow for greater collaboration between upper county medical resources and an expansion of services to the community.
The move will allow Swedish Health Services to relocate to the Alpha Way clinic, where it will operate adjacent to KVH Family Medicine – Cle Elum. The Alpha Way building is owned by Hospital District 2 and leased by Kittitas Valley Healthcare.
Swedish is preparing the site to host both on-site and telehealth services in the spring of 2018, while also evaluating area needs, and availability of Swedish and other specialty care providers. We expect the Swedish presence at the site to evolve over the coming months and years.
KVH Urgent Care – Cle Elum will maintain its current daily hours of 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and increase staffing levels to handle non-emergent items such as earaches, fevers, minor allergic reactions, and simple fractures. In cases of emergency, the public should call 911.
The public is invited to tour the new facility and meet the staff during an open house at the new location on Friday, February 2 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
