Eugene, Ore. – PeaceHealth has announced upcoming changes to its urgent care services to better serve the Eugene-Springfield community from a more centralized location.
PeaceHealth will continue to offer urgent care services at its West Eugene clinic (3321 W. 11th Ave.) until 3 p.m. on Monday, November 27.
After that time, the west Eugene location will close as the clinic’s staff relocates to Suite 110 in the PeaceHealth Medical Group building at University District at 1200 Hilyard St.
The new PeaceHealth University District Urgent Care clinic will start serving patients at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, November 29. The clinic will be open seven days a week, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. It will extend evening hours as the clinic’s staffing increases.
Those who need urgent medical services on Tuesday, November 28, are encouraged to contact their primary care provider or visit PeaceHealth Woodfield Station Primary Care and Walk-in clinic at 2846 Willamette St.; phone: 541-222-8700.
At the new University District Urgent Care clinic, ample parking will be available in the garage, with entrances at Hilyard and E. 12th Ave., or off Patterson Street.
The clinic is also accessible via the Lane Transit District bus system, with an EMX stop at Hilyard and 11th Avenue.
The PHMG building at University District, which houses many clinics and doctor’s offices, in addition to a lab and imaging, is on the west side of Hilyard Street. It will not be impacted by the planned closure of the University District hospital tower on the east side of Hilyard Street.
PeaceHealth announced in August the start of a comprehensive process to close the underutilized University District hospital.
The University District Emergency Department will permanently close as of 7 a.m. on Friday, December 1.
Inpatient rehabilitation, the only remaining service in the University District hospital tower, will relocate on Dec. 15 to PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend in Springfield. Following the unit’s move to RiverBend, the University District hospital tower will close.
The inpatient behavioral health unit, on the corner of Alder Street and 11th Avenue, will remain open and serving patients.
PeaceHealth has been committed to Lane County for nearly 100 years and will continue to enhance and elevate our services as the health care needs of our community evolve.
