Port Ludlow Clinic
Work has begun on the new Port Ludlow Clinic, which will be more than twice the size of the current facility and improve access to primary and specialty care for local residents.
The present Port Ludlow Clinic has experienced steady increases in use since it opened in 2013. That year, the clinic hosted 2,455 patient visits, followed by 3,661 in 2014. In 2015, the clinic had 3,996 visits. “More people see the Port Ludlow Clinic as a convenient local option for health care,” says Lisa Holt, MSN, MS, RN, Chief Ancillary Officer at Jefferson Healthcare. “By building a new clinic, we’ll be able to expand our services and provide additional access for the Port Ludlow community so residents can receive even more of their care close to home.”
Building a new era of local care.
Workers broke ground on the new Port Ludlow Clinic on the north corner of Paradise Bay Road in May. The one-story, 4,000-square-foot building is expected to open in early 2017. The clinic will feature six exam rooms where staff will focus on providing primary care. Cardiac and orthopedic specialists will be available, as will laboratory and X-ray services. The clinic may add additional specialty providers in the future, based on community needs. “Listening to the community and understanding residents’ needs were important parts of planning the new clinic,” says Holt. “We are committed to being the healthcare provider for Port Ludlow.”
