Urgent Care for Orthopaedic Injuries During COVID-19
TCO will open an urgent care clinic for patients with orthopaedic injuries during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our community emergency rooms must be able to focus on patients that are coming in with coronavirus symptoms.
The temporary urgent care center will be located at 6703 West Rio Grande Ave in Kennewick. Walk-in patients will first be screened for COVID-19 symptoms before being allowed in the clinic and temperature will be checked. Calling ahead to 509-460-5588 is recommended to streamline visit.
Leading the Way in Quality Orthopaedic Care
NO REFERRALS NEEDED FOR MOST INSURANCE POLICIES
The safety and well-being of our patients, employees, and community members is our highest priority. TCO continues to actively monitor the ever-changing information made available through the CDC, the Washington State Department of Health, and other resources to stay up to date on the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in our communities. Due to this, we ask that you consider rescheduling your appointment for a later date if you meet one or more of the following criteria:
- Have symptoms including coughing, shortness of breath, or fever of 100.4 or higher
- Have been in contact with a person experiencing the above symptoms
- Have been in contact with a person known to have COVID-19
- Have traveled outside the United States in the last 6-weeks
Whenever possible, we ask that you come to your appointment alone. If this is not possible, we encourage your caregiver to stay in the car for the duration of your appointment. If other accommodations need to be made, please contact our office before your appointment.
We now have the ability to conduct telemed/telehealth visits via doxy.me, telephone calls, and/or FaceTime, if needed. We will contact existing appointments to offer a telemed/telehealth visit if appropriate for your needs. If you feel that your orthopaedic needs are urgent or require a clinic visit, please contact our office at (509) 460 – 5588.
