Spokane-based FirstCare Urgent Care Centers LLC says it will move its Liberty Lake clinic closer to the Liberty Lake-Interstate 90 interchange in August and will begin operating the clinic seven days a week.
The new location will be at 1431 N. Liberty Lake Road, in a building that formerly housed the Needful Things LLC gift store, says Christine Varela, spokeswoman for FirstCare, which operates four walk-in medical clinics in the Spokane area.
The building is near the intersection of Liberty Lake Road and Appleway Avenue south of I-90.
FirstCare will occupy 2,900 square feet of leased floor space, slightly more space than it has at its current location, which is about a mile east of there, at 2207 N. Molter Road. The Liberty Lake clinic has been at that location since 1999 and is open there every day but Sunday.
Varela says the clinic will have easier access and higher visibility at the new location.
FirstCare has a combined total of about a dozen physicians on staff at its clinics. Coinciding with the Liberty Lake move, FirstCare plans to hire an additional physician and expand to a seven-day-a-week operating schedule, Varela says.
She says FirstCare doesn't anticipate any interruption in service during the move.
GoWireless Inc., a Snoqualmie, Wash.-based Verizon cell-phone services and products retailer, plans to open its fifth Spokane-area outlet in a 900-square-foot suite in July in the same building where the FirstCare clinic will move.
FirstCare's other clinics are at 6208 N. Colton, on Spokane's North Side; 3016 E. 57th, on the South Hill; and 2713 N. Argonne Road, in Spokane Valley.
FirstCare is owned by Franklin, Tenn.-based Community Health Services Inc., which also owns Deaconess Medical Center and Valley Hospital & Medical Center.
