Clinic Extended Hours

The Clinic now holds extended hours of operating. The expanded hours run from 5pm to 7pm Monday through Friday. Patients will be seen on a walk in, first come first serve basis. Because the extended hours are focused on providing urgent but not emergent care, physicals, wellness exams, preventative care, and follow-ups for continuous medical issues need to be scheduled during regular clinic hours. Please understand, there are limited resources during these clinic hours. Certain age groups, symptoms, conditions, or patient volumes may need to be diverted to the Emergency Department for immediate care. During extended hours, patients will be registered at the Hospital Registration area where they can inform registration staff that they would like to be seen through the clinic’s extended hours. If you have any questions about the Clinic’s extended hours please call Keva Brandis, Public Relations Director, at (775) 289-3612 Ext. 346.
We are committed to quality care and patient safety and appreciate your continued support of our facility. For the latest news about our facility and current health and wellness information, sign up for our e-newsletter.
