The SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) will soon be expanding its clinic hours at the Ethel Lund Medical Center in Juneau.
Beginning Monday, Nov. 4, the clinic along with the pharmacy will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday. The weekday hours were previously 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
"Our goal is to provide access to patients that prefer to see a provider later in the day," Clinic Administrator, Kristina Randolph said. "Additionally we hope that patients with non emergent needs will be able to access the clinic instead of the emergency room during these expanded hours. There is no doubt that parents and students are busy and we would like to be open and available at a time that is convenient to our patients."
Patients needing an appointment are encouraged to call early in the day. The ELMC Scheduling Line is (907) 463-6608.
