Construction has begun on an urgent care clinic near the intersection of U.S. Highway 2 and Holland Avenue in north Spokane, according to city permit data.
The $800,000 project, called MultiCare Indigo-Spokane North, is improving an existing, 5,400-square-foot building built last year. When complete, the clinic will have 10 exam rooms and additional clinic support spaces.
MultiCare, a Tacoma-based company that bought the Rockwood Health System in late 2016, has 16 urgent care centers in the Puget Sound region. At its “high-end” clinics, patients receive coffee, can use Wi-Fi and mobile device charging ports and are attended by a “concierge.” Like most urgent care facilities, its clinics treat a range of conditions that typically require immediate, non-emergency care, including cold and flu, fevers, minor fractures and sprains, sports physicals and urinary tract infections.
The clinic is expected to open in October.
The project’s general contractor is Bouten Construction Co., of Spokane. BCRA Design, of Tacoma, is the architect.
