Mid Coast Hospital Walk-In Clinic Extends Hours, Offers Virtual Appointments

Brunswick Maine – The Mid Coast Hospital Walk-In Clinic has expanded its hours and is now open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. daily. Opening the clinic an hour earlier will allow patients to schedule early morning visits before work and school, as well as be seen by a provider after traditional business hours.

“As we plan for the return to school, we know that many families will have questions about symptoms of COVID-19,” said Tari Advani, MD, Mid Coast Hospital Walk-In Clinic Medical Director. “Expanding hours at the Walk-In Clinic will assist patients and families by providing extra time to meet with a provider to assess any health concerns or questions. Our providers can recommend the best course of treatment and refer to testing as needed.”

Located in downtown Brunswick, the Mid Coast Hospital Walk-In Clinic offers a more affordable alternative to an emergency room visit or appointment at a private urgent care facility. The clinic is perfect for when a patient cannot get an appointment to see their physician or does not have a primary care provider. Patients can get expert and urgent care for minor medical problems such as cuts, sprains, coughs and infections, as well as onsite diagnostic services, including X-rays. The Walk-In Clinic is also co-located with a laboratory service center and integrated with all Mid Coast Medical Group practices, allowing for unified record keeping for patients.

Additionally, like all other Mid Coast–Parkview Health facilities, the Mid Coast Hospital Walk-In Clinic has implemented additional safety measures to help keep patients and community members as healthy as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to social distancing, universal masking, and increased hand hygiene, the Walk-In Clinic offers online check-in for added convenience and shorter wait times.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Walk-In Clinic also started offering virtual visits. Telehealth visits are like a regular in-person visit, just over video, allowing patients to have a visit with a provider without having to travel or leave their home. Patients can use the visit to talk about medical concerns, symptoms, get a prescription, a diagnosis, and more. If the provider feels that you need to be evaluated in person, he or she will refer you to the appropriate care setting.

“The Walk-In Clinic is fully integrated with the entire Mid Coast–Parkview Health system,” said Dr. Advani. “In these unprecedented times, we are glad to be able to provide quick and convenient care and to support the healthcare needs of our community.”
