The Sexual Assault Clinic is part of Providence St. Peter Hospital in Olympia. We serve residents of Thurston, Lewis, Mason, Grays Harbor and Pacific counties.
Our social workers consult with those who have concerns about a possibility of sexual assault, physical abuse or chronic neglect. The patients we see are children, adolescents and vulnerable adults. Please call the clinic so we can help you determine what to do next. (360) 493-7469 or 1 (888) 492-9480 ext. 34549
Our physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses and social workers provide special medical evaluations for children, adolescents and adults. Patients and their families are then referred to community agencies for counseling and other services.
We are an accredited specialty services provider. The Washington State Crime Victims Compensation Program pays for every evaluation. Patients or their families will not be charged.
Victims of an assault that occurred within the last 96 hours should be seen at a hospital emergency room. Our sexual assault nurse examiners are on call to the Providence St. Peter Hospital Emergency Center.
Call your local Child Protective Services hotline or law enforcement agency if you suspect a child has been sexually abused.
Preparing a Young Person for a Clinic Visit
- Talk with our social worker about the best way to explain a clinic visit to your child.
- Assure your child that we see many children just like them. We understand.
- Tell your child they can choose an adult to be with them during their examination.
- Reassure the child that this is not a physically painful or invasive exam.
- Encourage older children to talk directly with our staff about their upcoming visit.
