PROSSER - Residents from Prosser to Zillah now have a new option for medical care with the opening of the Adventist Health Medical Clinic in Prosser. Located at 336 Chardonnay Ave. the clinic, opened last month, offers primary care to patients of all ages - children through adults. Practitioners in the clinic include Dr. Albert Fiedler and Michelle Daughety, ARNP. The clinic is a collaboration between Adventist Health, Kadlec and PMH Medical Center. Patients wishing to make an appointment can call 509-786-2002. Adventist Health Medical Clinic in Prosser is based on a collaborative approach on the part of Adventist Health, Kadlec and PMH medical centers, all working together to bring quality, primary care to residents in the Lower Yakima Valley. The three entities all play a unique role when it comes to offering exceptional patient-centered care. Walla Walla General Hospital, Adventist Health's hospital in the region, owns and operates the clinic, providing support and operational staff as well as employing Advanced Registered Nurse (ARNP) Michelle Daughety. Patients will receive materials related to their care and billing from Adventist Health. Also, coming fall 2013, patients will be able to access the Adventist Health Community Pharmacy - a retail pharmacy located inside the clinic featuring a drive-thru window for patient convenience. Within the clinic, patients will find Kadlec physicians who work as members of the Adventist Health Medical Clinic team. They provide medical services, including the diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic diseases, annual wellness physicals, preventative medicine, in-office procedures and general health care and wellness information. In the near future Kadlec specialty physicians will also serve the clinic on a rotating basis. Staff from PMH Medical Center will perform and manage laboratory services. On-site services include phlebotomy, urinalysis and rapid strep. More advanced lab services will be completed at the PMH Medical Center lab on the hospital campus. Diagnostic services, including x-ray, CT scans, ultrasound, mammography, bone density testing and MRI, are supported by PMH Medical Center. All three organizations are committed to expanding health care in the community and providing exceptional patient focused care.
