Urgent care clinic opens in Hazelwood
Adventist Health Medical Group opened a new urgent care clinic last month at its Parkrose Medical Plaza at Northeast 122nd Avenue and Halsey Street to help fill the need for more urgent care options on Portland’s east side.

“Our urgent care clinics are essential resources for people in and around the city who regularly visit one of our primary care providers,” said Dorane Brower, vice president for integrated physician and health plan services at Adventist Health. “We recognize the importance for patients and community members to have access to high-quality, convenient medical care when they can’t see their regular providers. Our new urgent care location helps fill that need for families and individuals in northeast Portland.”

Beyond urgent care, the Parkrose Medical Plaza also offers primary care services, onsite lab and imaging services and physical therapy for its patients. The facility also houses Adventist Health’s occupational medicine team.

“Continuity and consistency in care keeps people healthy and helps prevent chronic diseases,” said Derek Meyer, a family medicine spet at Parkrose Medical Plaza. “As a medical group dedicated to patient wellness, having both urgent care and primary care providers working together under one roof will help us keep patients and our community healthy over the long run.”

Adventist Health’s urgent care clinic at Parkrose Medical Plaza is open noon to 7:30 p.m., Monday–Friday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Primary care services are available at Parkrose Medical Plaza from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday–Thursday, and 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fridays.
