Barnabas Samaritan Clinic Offers Medical Help
Mar 11, 2013 02:00AM
The Barnabas Samaritan Medical Clinic is a free urgent care clinic that opened in 2005. Dr. Tom Washburn serves as the volunteer Medical Director of the clinic, and two Registered Nurses serve as patient coordinators. Community physicians, physicians’ assistants, nurses, social workers, and other volunteers generously donate their time to provide quality medical care for eligible patients.
The program offers medical care services to adults in need of urgent care. Urgent care is defined as care that does not require the Hospital Emergency Department, but is not a chronic illness, such as unstable hypertension, wound care, infection or unstable diabetes. Other services include physical assessment, written prescriptions, and mental health evaluation.
If you or someone you know is not insured and needs urgent medical care you may call (904) 261-7887, or visit the clinic at 1886 South 14th Street Tuesday or Thursday evenings, beginning at 4:45 p.m. The clinic can only serve a limited number of patients each evening.
