RANCHO CORDOVA, CA (MPG) - Sutter Health has opened the newest Walk-In Care clinic today in Rancho Cordova, a service of the Sutter Medical Foundation, at 4040 Sunrise Blvd, in the Sunridge Plaza near the Anatolia Center.
Sutter’s Walk-In Care clinics offer a quick, convenient care option for everyday illnesses and health needs in a stand-alone storefront that is easily accessible. The Rancho Cordova clinic is Sutter Health’s sixth Valley area location. Other clinics are located in Citrus Heights, El Dorado Hills, Elk Grove and Roseville (4010 Foothills Blvd. and 781 Pleasant Grove Blvd.).
“These locations offer easy access to treatment for a whole host of needs, whether it’s treating the flu or an ear infection or wellness services like sports or pre-employment physicals,” said Kelly Foss, Sutter Walk-In Care regional manager. “We hope that by providing more convenient access to care, in places where many people are already running their errands, patients won’t put off getting the care they need to stay healthy.”
Sutter is committed to creating numerous access points to care. For the past several years, Sutter has explored new ways to meet consumers where they are for their care needs. In addition to the Sutter Walk-in Care locations, other convenient options include Sutter urgent care centers or video visits, in addition to traditional office visits with a primary care doctor within Sutter’s network of care.
“We want to reserve emergency departments for complex and life-threatening illnesses, rather than having people with minor medical problems going there because they have no other option,” Foss said. “At the same time, allowing patients to receive non-urgent care and vaccinations quickly, near where they live or work, should help free up doctor-office visits for those with more serious issues.”
While Sutter Walk-In Care provides a wide variety of healthcare services, patients with serious problems or illnesses that require more immediate attention, such as severe cuts or broken bones, should visit an urgent care clinic, or their nearest hospital emergency department.
