Providence Leases Two New Clinic Buildings in Walla Walla
New primary care providers begin seeing patients September 5
Walla Walla, WA—Providence Medical Group has leased two buildings on the campus of the former Walla Walla General Hospital and will be relocating its Family Medicine clinic there, as well as some other practices.
Leased are the Pavilion at 19 Southpoint Lane, and the clinic building at 1111 S. Second Ave.
Many of the former Adventist Health primary care providers who have joined Providence will begin seeing patients September 5. Patients who already had appointments with them will be called to determine if they wish to keep their appointments. Once that’s complete, Providence will begin adding in newly-requested appointments.
Providence Family Medicine
Beginning September 5, Providence Family Medicine will be at a new location: 1111 S. Second Avenue. This also will be the first day that some family practice providers previously with Adventist Health will begin seeing patients as part of Providence Medical Group.
The phone number for Providence Medical Group Family Medicine remains the same. Appointments can be made by calling 509-897-3700.
Providence Internal Medicine
The Internal Medicine clinic will remain at 380 Chase Avenue, and expand with the addition of two new providers who will begin seeing patients September 5.
Neurologists will continue to serve patients from his current clinic location at 19 Southpoint Lane as part of Providence Medical Group. Dr. Chung will begin seeing patients again on September 25. For appointments or more information, call (509) 897-8008.
Former Adventist Health patients who are running out of prescription medications are advised to call their pharmacies for a refill. Although the prescription may say on the bottle or box that there are no refills left, many of the providers sent refill orders in to pharmacies for their patients to ensure they didn’t run out during the interim.
If the pharmacy does not have a refill order, there are a number of options to get one, including:
- Ask the pharmacy to fax the refill request to Providence Medical Group Family Medicine.
- Log on to Providence Express Care Virtual at virtual.providence.org for an online visit with a health care provider.
- Make a same-day appointment with Providence Express Care across from Wal-Mart in College Place by clicking here, or calling 888-227-3312.
Please do not go to the Emergency Department for a prescription refill.
Outpatient Lab Services
Providence will offer outpatient lab draws at both the Chase and Second Avenue locations.
Initially, patients needing imaging services such as x-rays will be directed to either the Chase Medical Complex or Providence St. Mary Medical Center. Later this fall, imaging will be added to the Second Avenue location.
