HERMISTON, OR – Just in time for cold and flu season the Good Shepherd Urgent Care (GSUC), formerly Gifford Urgent Care, has extended hours to offer services seven days a week. With the ever-increasing need for primary care services throughout the region, this was a strategic move by Good Shepherd Health Care System (GSHCS) administration to fulfill the promise they made when acquiring the Gifford Urgent Care to expand services to meet the urgent healthcare needs of an ever-growing community.
Essentially, the GSUC expansion of services will give community members another walk-in option in addition to the Emergency Department at GSHCS for lower acuity conditions that can be cared for adequately in the Urgent Care setting. These conditions include; Cold, Flu, Pink Eye, Sore Throat, Ear Ache, Joint and Muscle Pain – Breaks and Sprains, Urinary Tract Infections, Bladder Infections, Back Pain, Minor Cuts and Lacerations, Skin Conditions, Burn Care, and many additional illnesses and injuries.
The GSUC also provides lab and x-ray services in the convenience of the same location. These services aid physicians and other providers in making diagnoses and treatment as accurate and expedient as possible for Urgent Care customers without having to be sent to another location for these services.
Currently, Sunday hours will be 10 AM to 2 PM. As the GSUC receives feedback additional hours will be explored to adequately meet the needs and demands of the community for Urgent Care services.
Good Shepherd Urgent Care is no appointment needed walk-in clinic caring for urgent, non-emergent health care needs. Located at the Columbia Professional Plaza at 1050 W. Elm Ave. in Hermiston. Services are now available seven days a week, Monday – Friday 8 AM to 6 PM, Saturday 9 AM to 3 PM, and Sunday 10 AM to 2 PM. For more information please call 541.567.2995.
