The Community Health Association of Spokane will open its new Valley Clinic next week.
Called CHAS, the nonprofit organization treats patients regardless of insurance coverage or ability to pay.
The new clinic, at 924 S. Pines Road, will offer services to people from throughout Eastern Washington, Idaho and Montana, including HIV/AIDS care, primary care, pharmacy and obstetrics.
The clinic opening is among several major initiatives at CHAS. In December the organization is doubling the size of its Northeast Clinic, moving to 5921 N. Market St.
And next year CHAS has plans to open an urgent care center to help treat patients with non-life-threatening yet urgent care needs that don’t merit a trip to a hospital emergency room.
Last year CHAS opened a dental clinic in Clarkston.
CHAS began in 1994 and serves about 30,000 patients. The organization anticipates health care reforms could double its patient load within five years.
