PACS Health Clinic
Our family health center, staffed by volunteer physicians and nurses, is another
program that is an integral part of our services at PACS. Due to lay-offs, temporary hiring and low-wage
jobs, many find themselves without access to health insurance.
Medical help is available to those without medical insurance. This clinic is run
by a small staff and a large team of volunteer health care professionals
including doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, medical assistants, and a pharmacist.
In 2012, 1,709 people made use of this service. Primary care accounts for the bulk of the
Many physicians from a wide range of specialties
are willing to treat our patients on a referral basis. The clinic works partners with the
Walla Walla College School of Nursing, Adventist Medical Center, and other area
organizations and specialists in the effort to provide primary medical care to persons of restricted
income with no access to health insurance.
As a member of the Coalition
of Community Health Clinics we link with other agencies to give our clients complete care.
