Asante closes two urgent care clinics
Asante Physician Partners has closed two of its three urgent care clinics — the Medford location on Black Oak Drive and the White City location along Highway 62 on Avenue G. The Grants Pass urgent care on the campus of Asante Three Rivers Medical Center will remain open.
The business decision to close the two clinics comes at a time when Asante urgent care volumes have declined.
“Since the beginning of the pandemic in early 2020, the number of people coming into our urgent care clinics has dropped significantly,” said Doug Ward, vice president of Operations for Asante Physician Partners. “Many of our patients shifted to using online video visits for their non-emergency, acute care needs.”
About 15 to 20 employees work at the two locations and will be reassigned to same or similar positions within other Asante facilities. “No employees are losing their jobs due to the closures,” Ward said.
Asante Physician Partners opened the Medford urgent care in 2016 and the White City location in 2018. The family practice clinics located in each of the urgent care buildings remain open to patients.
