Good Samaritan will be opening a second Convenient Care Clinic inside Williams
Bros. Health Care Pharmacy in Vincennes located at 1216 Washington Avenue
on March 9. The new clinic will be run by nurse practitioner, Theresa
Hutchison, and certified medical assistant, Kaycee Rich. The clinic will
be open from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday to meet the
non-emergent acute needs of the community.
The Convenient Care Clinic in Williams Bros. will provide diagnostic services
and treatment for minor injuries and illnesses. The conditions typically
cared for will be: common illnesses; allergic reactions; asthma (mild
to moderate wheezing); general wound care; rashes/skin infections; simple
burns and cuts; strains, sprains and simple fractures; vomiting, diarrhea
and nausea; ear infections; insect bites; sore throats, colds, flu and
fever; and urinary tract infections. Patients at the new clinic must be
three years of age or older.
“Good Samaritan has partnered with Williams Bros. to continue our
focus of patient centered care,” said Adam Thacker, Chief Operating
Officer. “With Williams Bros. already serving the community for
pharmacy and medical equipment needs, this was a natural direction to
look at opportunities to make care more convenient. As a pharmacist myself,
I know in health care today that about a third of patients do not fill
their first-time ordered prescriptions.”
Thacker also mentions a contributing factor to the increasing amount of
prescriptions not being filled is due to the lack of access to a pharmacy
whether it be because of transportation, time or other factors. By placing
Good Samaritan’s second Convenient Care Clinic in the same location
as a pharmacy, barriers can be removed to patients getting their prescribed
medications timely and without additional hardship.
“Williams Bros. is thrilled to host the Good Samaritan Convenient
Care Clinic inside our Vincennes location,” said Mark Williams,
co-owner of Williams Bros. Health Care Pharmacy. “We believe the
partnership between Williams Bros. and Good Samaritan will bring excellent
care to the entire community.”
The community is invited to attend a ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating
the opening of the Convenient Care clinic on Monday, March 9 at 9:30 a.m.
(EST) at Williams Bros. Pharmacy.
