Good Samaritan's Convenient Care Clinic to Open Second Location

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.
