A new Madigan Army Medical Center clinic is opening this week in Olympia to give military families in Thurston County easier access to their health care.
The clinic is intended to serve about 8,000 patients. Madigan opened a similar clinic in Puyallup last year that has enrolled 6,500 patients.
“We’re excited to be able to expand the quality health care our families currently receive at Madigan to these nearby clinics,” said Madigan commander Col. Dallas Homas.
The community clinics take some of the daily traffic out of Madigan’s main hospital at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, which is typically a busy place full of service members, their dependents and some veterans. They’re also intended to help patients develop closer relationships with their primary caregivers.
The new clinic opens Wednesday. It is located at 500 Lilly Road NE, Suite 120 in Olympia.
To enroll in the clinic, call (253) 477-5149.
