SEARHC offers evening and weekend appointments in Juneau

March 24 2014

JUNEAU – The SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) has expanded its weekday clinic hours and now schedules weekend appointments at the Ethel Lund Medical Center in Juneau. The clinic is open 8:00 AM – 8:00 PM Monday through Thursday, and 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM on Friday. The weekday hours were previously 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

ELMC has also moved from its previous weekend Walk-In Clinic model to scheduling specific appointment times for patients on Saturday from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM and Sunday from Noon-4:00 PM. In addition, the pharmacy is open during the same hours the clinic is open, including weekday evenings and weekends.

Clinic Administrator, Kristina Randolph says, “Our goal is to continue to improve our access to patients. We hope that patients with non emergent needs will be able to access the clinic instead of the emergency room during these expanded hours.” Randolph adds, “There is no doubt that parents and students are busy and we would like to be open and available at a time that is convenient to our patients.”

Patients needing an appointment are encouraged to call early in the day. The ELMC Scheduling Line is (907) 463-6608.
