Day Kimball Healthcare to Open Walk-In Clinic in Plainfield

July 17, 2019

Day Kimball Healthcare (DKH) is bringing additional healthcare services and patient support to the community by opening a walk-in clinic conveniently located inside its existing Plainfield Healthcare Center at 12 Lathrop Road in Plainfield. The Plainfield Walk-In Clinic will begin seeing patients on Monday, July 22.

The walk-in clinic will offer the surrounding community fast, convenient access to high quality healthcare for common, non-life-threatening conditions, such as minor injuries and infections. It will provide a more affordable option for basic medical services than a hospital emergency department.

“We want to provide easily accessible and affordable medical care with expanded hours of operation to ensure the community has access to an appropriate setting of care when and where they need it most,” said DKH President and CEO Anne Diamond. “The walk-in clinic will provide all of these advantages, and you don’t have to be a DKH patient to use the clinic. We are pleased to be able to offer this level of exceptional, expert care to anyone in our community who needs it.”

The walk-in clinic’s experienced staff of physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners can treat the entire family with quality care and personal service. Patients can expect a wide-range of services available for low acuity health issues, including on-site immunizations from mumps to chickenpox, travel vaccinations, and flu shots. The walk-in clinic will feature 6 exam rooms with the advantage of adjacent laboratory and imaging services when required.

Patients who have an established primary care provider (PCP) within the Day Kimball Healthcare network will be followed-up with by their provider after their visit to the walk-in clinic as needed. And, patients that receive treatment at the walk-in but do not have a PCP will be provided with a recommendation to one of Day Kimball Medical Group’s caring practitioners, extending the continuum of care beyond the walk-in visit.

No appointment is necessary for the Plainfield Walk-In Clinic which will be open 7 days a week, Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., on weekends from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on major holidays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

In the case of life threatening medical issues or situations, call 9-1-1 immediately, or report to the nearest emergency facility. Day Kimball Healthcare’s Townsend Emergency Medical Center located at Day Kimball Hospital in Putnam is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Day Kimball Healthcare plans to open a second walk-in clinic in the Putnam area later this fall. To learn more about Day Kimball Healthcare’s Plainfield Walk-In Clinic visit daykimball.org/walk-in.
