Salem, Ore. — BestMed Urgent Care celebrated the opening of its newest clinic at 2920 Commercial St. SE in Salem, Ore. on Tuesday, June 25. The Salem clinic is the 24th in Oregon and the 39th overall for BestMed.

“Opening in Salem is a special occasion for us,” said Jim Ashby, CEO of Community Care Partners, management partner of BestMed. “BestMed was founded as Eugene Urgent Care by a group of emergency medicine physicians in 2008, and the ethos of providing ‘Care That Is Personal’ has been at the heart of our organization since day one. It’s driven our growth and allowed us to expand to four additional western states, but opening in Salem feels like a homecoming. We are very proud to be in our home-state capital and are excited to serve the community.”

BestMed Salem is open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily and provides treatment for a wide variety of non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries including minor cuts and fractures; bites, burns and rashes; allergies; and upper respiratory infections and more.

“Our urgent care clinics provide the medical attention people need, when they need it — filling the gap between emergency care for life-threatening issues and routine care that can wait for an appointment with your regular medical provider,” said Dan Surdam, Chief Medical Officer of Community Care Partners.

Like all the company’s clinics, the Salem BestMed is equipped with tools such as X-ray, EKG and rapid PCR testing machines to make quick, accurate diagnoses. It also dispenses many of the most common non-opioid mediations, such as antibiotics, on-site so patients do not have to wait to fill some prescriptions.

“What really sets us apart, though, is our service mentality. Our staff and providers genuinely care about their neighbors and want to help people feel better as quickly as possible,” said Surdam. “We know no one is excited about going to urgent care, so we aim to make the experience as comforting, convenient and quick as possible.”

Patients do not need an appointment to visit BestMed and can walk-in anytime during business hours.
