Starting Sept. 4, children and teens may see a pediatrician or mental health provider at the Boys & Girls Club in Corvallis.
“The new clinics will be beneficial for several reasons,” said Samaritan President and CEO Doug Boysen. “They will allow us to expand our pediatric services — for both physical and mental health services. Also, they will give us a venue to better engage with the Coordinated Care Organization population and other youth who will benefit from the convenient access to health services.”
The clinics represent an innovative partnership between Samaritan and the Boys & Girls Club, making care available in a place where teens and children gather.
Located upstairs in the Club’s new Johnson Teen Center building, Samaritan Pediatrics - Circle Blvd. will provide primary care for club members and children from the community. Interested parents can call 541-768-1220 to schedule an appointment for this fall.
These services complement dental care offered at the Club. To learn more about available dental services, parents can call Benton County Dental Services at 541-257-2006.
The public is invited to the open house for the new Johnson Teen Center, Friday, Sept. 7 from 4 to 6 p.m. Visit the Boys & Girls Club website for more information.
