Forest Grove, Ore. – BestMed Urgent Care is now open at 3675 Pacific Avenue, Unit #101, in Forest Grove, Ore. The clinic, one of 30 throughout the West and the 18th in Oregon, began serving the public after a ribbon cutting ceremony with the Forest Grove Chamber of Commerce on February 28. Clinic hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends.
“The shortage of primary care providers in the U.S. means that even within the larger Portland Metropolitan Area, people are finding it difficult to access timely medical care,” said Jim Ashby, chief executive officer of Community Care Partners (CCP), BestMed’s parent company. “Our urgent care clinics provide the medical attention you need, when you need it — filling the gap between emergency care for life-threatening issues and routine care that can wait weeks or months for an appointment with your regular doctor.”
Services that fall within the gap BestMed fills include such things as treatment for sinus infections, earaches, minor burns, lacerations and dehydration. BestMed in Forest Grove, like all the company’s clinics, is also equipped with diagnostic tools including X-ray and EKG machines, and tests for Covid-19, flu, pregnancy and more.
As importantly, said Ashby, quality of care at BestMed rivals that of traditional medical practices.
“Our providers are friendly, well-trained professionals who take our motto to provide Care That Is Personal to heart,” he said. “We often receive reviews and comments from patients who say they wish they could have the person they saw at urgent care as their primary care provider.”
