Kaweah Delta unveils new Exeter Women's Health Clinic
Kaweah Delta unveils Exeter Women’s Health Clinic
VISALIA – Kaweah Delta unveiled its new Exeter Women’s Health
Clinic on Thursday, Jan. 10 in Exeter. The clinic is part of a three clinic
expansion project that is bringing needed health services to people in
rural areas such as Lindsay, Exeter, and Dinuba.
The open house, which is also an Exeter Chamber of Commerce Business After
Hours Networking Mixer, took place at Kaweah Delta Exeter Women’s
Health Clinic, 1013 San Juan Ave., Building B., in Exeter.
The new Women’s Health Clinic added seven exam rooms and two procedure
rooms to Exeter Health Clinic and allowed the Exeter clinic to expand
patient capacity for Family Medicine and specialty services such as Pulmonary
Care, Nephrology, Neurology, Dermatology, Orthopedics and more.
“Our health clinics play an important role. They provide care in
communities that would not otherwise have access to care and by keeping
people well in their communities, the clinics help take pressure off our
Emergency Department,” said Dave Garrett, Director of Kaweah Delta’s
Rural Health Clinics, noting that about 40 percent of patients who come
into Kaweah Delta’s Emergency Department do not have life-threatening
illnesses or injuries. “The more we can increase access to health
care in rural areas, the more pressure we can take off our Emergency Department.
At the same time, those services are profitable and return money back
to Kaweah Delta.”
The clinic expansion project has also:
-Doubled the size of the Lindsay Health Clinic and brought much needed
mental health services to the Lindsay area. Patients are seen by psychiatrists,
including resident physicians from Kaweah Delta’s Psychiatry Residency Program.
-Added five more exam rooms for women’s health services and a room
to provide comprehensive perinatal services in the areas of nutrition,
psychosocial and health education for women at Dinuba Health Clinic.
Construction on the expansion projects began in 2017, and was completed
in 2018; Kaweah Delta received approval from the state to open in August.
Walk-in patients are welcome at all of Kaweah Delta Health Clinics and
most insurance is accepted.
