Immediate Care Clinic in North Bend now open 7 days per week

The Immediate Care Clinic inside the North Bend Medical Center is now open 7 days a week.

NORTH BEND, Ore. - The Immediate Care Clinic inside the North Bend Medical Center is now open 7 days a week.

The new Sunday hours of 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. are an added convenience for registered nurse and patient Heather Hughes.

Hughes had to take her 8-year-old daughter Olivia to the clinic for an earache.

The visit would have cost hundreds or more at the emergency room, but cost Hughes the same as her usual co-pay at the ICC.

It’s part of staff’s initiative for more affordable, and accessible health care.

CEO John Burles said it’s been a project since the clinic opened in March 2014.

Nurse practitioner Ashley Weber said it’s been a help to patients and to physicians by lessening their weekly workload.

As a single mother, Hughes says it’s saved her time and money.

This is the only clinic with extended weekend hours in Coos County.
