Providence Health Care has opened two express care clinics at Walgreens stores in Spokane and Spokane Valley.

The clinics, which opened last week, offer same-day or walk-in appointments for common illnesses or injuries. The clinics are at Walgreens North Side store at 12315 N. Division St. and in the Spokane Valley Walgreens at 12312 E. Sprague Ave. Providence medical providers staff the clinics 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday through Tuesday, with plans to expand to seven days per week in the future.

Providence opened its first express care clinic last year in the Lincoln Heights Shopping Center on the South Hill.

The clinics are designed to provide easy, quick access to quality care, Dr. Michael Ravelo, medical director for Express Care clinics in Spokane, said in a news release.

The clinics offer flat rate pricing and accept insurance. Clinic visits cost $149; sports physicals, $50; procedures, $90; screenings and tests, $9 to $40; and immunizations, $30.

Common conditions treated at the express clinics include cold, flu and allergies; skin rashes; wound care and minor burns; urinary tract infections; and sprains.

The clinics also provide tests for flu, pregnancy, blood sugar and sexually transmitted diseases.
