Kaweah Delta’s second urgent care location now open
VISALIA – Kaweah Delta’s second urgent care in Visalia opened
on Monday, Aug. 13, to help serve the healthcare needs of the community
and reduce overcrowding in one of the busiest emergency departments in
“This is just one of the ways we are working to reduce overcrowding
in the emergency department at Kaweah Delta,” said John Leal, Director
of Kaweah Delta’s Urgent Care Clinics. “We are giving our
community members another option where they can go if they are sick and
need non-emergency care and their doctor is unavailable.”
This second Kaweah Delta Urgent Care is located at 3600 W. Flagstaff Ave.,
just north of Demaree Street and Riggin Avenue, in Visalia.
Like Kaweah Delta Urgent Care at 1633 S. Court St., the second urgent care
location has 14 patient rooms, and provides care for general illnesses,
offering everything from physicals to workers’ compensation care.
The new location will also be open seven days a week, have on-site radiology,
lab services, and will offer the community popular features such as the
ability to check wait times online and check in from home.
Construction on the $4 million project began in summer 2017 and was completed
in May; Kaweah Delta received state approval this week to open. This project
was funded by proceeds from the $100 million revenue bonds sold by Kaweah
Delta in December 2015. Principal and interest will be repaid to bond
holders from revenues received by Kaweah Delta for providing patient care services.
The new Kaweah Delta Urgent Care will be open seven days a week from 8
a.m. to 8 p.m. at 3600 W. Flagstaff Ave., just north of Demaree Street
and Riggin Avenue, in Visalia. Walk-in patients are welcome. Most insurances
are accepted. For more information, visit www.kaweahdelta.org/urgentcare.
