Northern Light Mercy Walk-In Care location update

Date: 10/20/2020

Since the pandemic began, Mercy has taken a number of steps to support our patients and the community by establishing a COVID-19 nurse triage hotline, a virtual COVID-19 telehealth clinic, a remote drive through testing facility that is open seven days a week, and a respiratory exam clinic for those who need in-person assessments of their COVID-19 symptoms. These steps were taken to respond to community need and to keep our patients and employees safe.
 
Due to the ongoing need to maintain our comprehensive response to the pandemic, we’ve reallocated resources from our walk-in care services to our COVID-19 response. As a result, on November 14, the Yarmouth walk-in care location will close. The status of all other services at the Yarmouth health center, including primary care, lab, and imaging, will be unchanged.
 
We also have a construction project underway to expand our Fore River hospital so that we can consolidate operations on one campus. As part of our consolidation process, the walk-in care located within the Fore River hospital is scheduled to close due to the space being repurposed as part of the master facility plan. As a result of this work and our need to continue to maintain a strong response to the pandemic, the Portland walk-in care location will also close on November 14.
