Adventist Health to Open Parkrose Urgent Care Clinic, Sept. 7

PORTLAND, Ore.—Adventist Health Medical Group announced today the opening of a new urgent care clinic at its Parkrose Medical Plaza. To celebrate, representatives from Adventist Health and the East Portland Chamber of Commerce will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony and grand opening on Sept. 7 at 9:30 a.m.

The new clinic at 122nd Avenue and Halsey Street will help fill the need for more urgent care options on Portland’s east side. Tours of Parkrose Medical Plaza’s new urgent care clinic will be available after the ribbon-cutting ceremony. The clinic’s physicians and other medical care providers will also be on hand to speak with guests and answer questions.

“Our urgent care clinics are essential resources for people in and around the city who regularly visit one of our primary care providers,” said Dorane Brower, vice president for integrated physician and health plan services at Adventist Health. “We recognize the importance for patients and community members to have access to high-quality, convenient medical care when they can’t see their regular providers. Our new urgent care location helps fill that need for families and individuals in northeast Portland.”

Adventist Health already operates urgent care clinics in Portland’s Rockwood neighborhood and in Sandy.

Beyond urgent care, the Parkrose Medical Plaza also offers primary care services, onsite lab and imaging services, and physical therapy for its patients. The facility also houses Adventist Health’s Occupational Medicine team.

“Continuity and consistency in care keeps people healthy and helps prevent chronic diseases,” said Dr. Derek Meyer, a family medicine specialist at Parkrose Medical Plaza. “As a medical group dedicated to patient wellness, having both urgent care and primary care providers working together under one roof will help us keep patients and our community healthy over the long run.”

Adventist Health’s urgent care clinic at Parkrose Medical Plaza is open noon to 7:30 p.m., Monday-Friday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Primary care services are available at Parkrose Medical Plaza from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday-Thursday, and 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fridays.

Parkrose Medical Plaza is located at 1350 NE 122nd Ave., Ste. 100, Portland. For more information, visit AdventistHealth.org/NW.
