Day Kimball Healthcare Plainfield Walk-In Clinic to Reopen August 1

July 30, 2020

Day Kimball Healthcare (DKH) has announced its walk-in clinic at its Plainfield Healthcare Center, located at 12 Lathrop Road in Plainfield, will reopen Saturday, August 1.

The Plainfield Walk-In Clinic temporarily suspended services in late March in response to significant drops in patient volume resulting from the coronavirus pandemic. Patients can once again visit the clinic for the same range of medical services that were available prior to its closure.

The Plainfield Walk-In Clinic will resume normal business hours, and will be open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., weekends from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on major holidays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. No appointment is necessary.

“Day Kimball Healthcare’s Plainfield Walk-In Clinic is an important resource for people seeking convenient and affordable medical care in our community, as well as those without a primary care provider,” said Paul Beaudoin, chief finance officer and interim chief executive officer, Day Kimball Healthcare. “We are pleased to be reopening the clinic and restoring this important access to healthcare.”

Multiple safeguards have been put in place at the Plainfield Healthcare Center to protect both staff and patients including masking requirements for employees and patients, social distancing measures, visitation restrictions, frequent cleaning of all areas, and symptom screening patients before building entry.

Other services available at the Day Kimball Healthcare Center in Plainfield are open, including diagnostic imaging, blood draw, internal medicine, OB/GYN, and pediatrics.

The reopening of the Plainfield Walk-In Clinic is part of a phased approach at Day Kimball Healthcare to balance the expansion of services while assuring a continually safe environment for patients, visitors, providers and staff.

“We have been thoughtfully and cautiously phasing in a return of services to make sure that we have what we need to protect our patients and staff and ensure the safety of everyone in our facilities. Day Kimball Healthcare’s locations are safe places to receive medical care for everything from preventative health visits at our outpatient centers to cancer treatments at our hospital to immediate medical issues at our walk-in clinic and emergency department,” said Beaudoin.

DKH recommends that anyone who develops a fever, cough or difficulty breathing should contact their primary care provider before visiting any healthcare location. Patients coming to the Walk-In clinic to have any of these symptoms evaluated should call the clinic from their car before entering the building, at (860) 457-9150.

In the case of life threatening medical issues or situations, call 9-1-1 immediately, or report to the nearest emergency facility. The Townsend Emergency Medical Center at Day Kimball Hospital in Putnam has remained open throughout the pandemic and is ready to treat any emergency, 24/7, in a safe, COVID-19 free environment.
