Sutter Coast Walk-In Care Expands Hours

Posted by on Jun 16, 2017 | 0 comments

Sutter Coast Hospital understands the importance of getting care when you need it, so the hospital has extended hours in the Sutter Coast Walk-In Care for the convenience of our patients. The health center is now open seven days a week with expanded hours from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

“We are excited to extend the operating hours at our facility to better serve our patients and their families with convenient, quality care,” said Vanita Roland, manager of the Sutter Coast Health Center. “Based on feedback we received from our patients, we adjusted to open earlier and stay open longer. As most of our patients come to the facility on a walk-in basis, we think they will appreciate the flexibility of the new hours.”

 Sutter Coast Walk-In Care offers quick access and personalized care for everyday illnesses and health needs from the flu to sprains and wellness services. The center offers daily walk-in services, no appointments necessary.

Sutter Coast Walk-In Care is located at 785 E. Washington Blvd., Crescent City (across the street from the hospital). For more information, please call 707-464-8818.

Sutter Coast Hospital hosts Blood Drive

Posted by on May 18, 2017 | 0 comments

Crescent City – Every two seconds in the U.S., a person is in need of blood. Sutter Coast Hospital in partnership with the Northern California Community Blood Bank (NCCBB) encourages Del Norte residents to attend the blood drive at the hospital on May 23.

“We rely heavily on our bloodmobile events to reach members of the community,” said Dee Vallee, donor recruiter with Northern California Community Blood Bank. “The bloodmobile helps supply roughly 70 percent of our blood supply.”

According to the blood bank, the entire blood donation process (screening, healthiness test and the donation) takes roughly 45 minutes to an hour and is relatively pain free.

“The summer is an important time to donate,” said Rose Corcoran, chief nurse executive at Sutter Coast Hospital. “Our physicians, nurses and staff members understand the importance of the blood drive and encourage the community to join them in supporting the blood drive for those patients who need it most.” Read More

Crescent City – Sutter Coast Hospital’s Brookings Diagnostic Imaging Center is now home to the first 3D mammography in Curry County, Oregon.

“3D mammography is currently the best cancer screening technology available,” said Wendi Workinger, radiology manager at Sutter Coast Hospital. “For patients, this means early breast cancer detection and a decreased need for additional images and biopsies allowing for a quicker diagnosis, less fake positives and more peace of mind.”
