The HRRMC Buena Vista Health Center, 28374 County Road 317, has expanded
its walk-in clinic to seven days a week. It is now open Monday through
Friday, 1 – 5:30 p.m., in addition to Saturdays and Sundays, 9 a.m.
– 1 p.m.
The walk-in clinic is open to anyone and is on a first-come, first-served
basis. Appointments are not required. The clinic treats common medical
issues such as burns, sprains, ear infections and the flu. It does not
serve as an emergency room, and emergencies will be directed to the hospital’s
Emergency Department in Salida.
“Offering a walk-in clinic is part of HRRMC’s overall strategy
of providing access to affordable health care,” said HRRMC CEO Bob
Morasko. “Urgent care was one of the top requests on the hospital’s
most recent community health needs assessment. The walk-in-clinic is a
less expensive option for patients; we charge the same fees at our walk-in
clinic as we do for our primary-care patients at the HRRMC Buena Vista
Health Center. The Buena Vista Health Center participates in Medicare,
Health First Colorado (Medicaid) and most private insurance plans.”
