MultiCare Spokane has closed its North Urgent Care clinic in preparation for a new North Side urgent care opening later this fall.
MultiCare spokesman Kevin Maloney said the health system already has moved its family medicine, pediatric and other specialty clinics from the location on North Country Homes Boulevard to the existing Northpointe specialty center.
Maloney said the relocation will make it easier for patients who are referred to specialists, because all the providers will be under one roof.
MultiCare, which purchased the Rockwood Health System last year, operates five other urgent care centers in the greater Spokane area: two in Spokane Valley, one in Liberty Lake, one on the South Hill and one downtown.
The Tacoma-based health provider announced earlier this month plans to open a “high-end” Indigo urgent care clinic. That clinic will open in October.
“We feel like we’re still going to be able to serve the needs of the community during the short gap,” Maloney said.
