Breaking Ground for Makana Urgent Care Clinic

Breaking Ground for Makana Urgent Care Clinic

After several years of hard work and collaboration, another project has broken ground that will benefit the whole North Shore – the Makana Urgent Care Clinic. It will be located behind the Princeville Fire Station. Their goal is to serve all people with non life-threatening injuries or ailments that currently go straight to the emergency room. ER doctors and/or nurse practitioners will be available 24 hours, 7 days a week. They will not be providing any general practitioner services and will refer patients to local GP’s, as well as offering the doctors use of the Urgent Care clinic’s state of the art x-ray, ultrasound and diagnostic facilities at cost.

If you are interested in seeing The Makana Urgent Care Clinic come to fruition, please review the following information:

    Please change the part of the website that inaccurately portrays Makana as a place for “emergencies.” Someone is going to lose critical time needed to receive proper care at an Emergency Department by driving to this facility (or any other NS facility). Specifically your website says: “Their goal is to serve all people with non life-threatening injuries or ailments that currently go straight to the emergency room. ER doctors and/or nurse practitioners will be available 24 hours, 7 days a week.” This is not a ER. Plain and simple. It is an urgent care. There is a vast difference. Dr Kimball would be the first to tell you if you have a true emergency (ruptured appendix, crushing chest pain, a stroke) you should call an ambulance and go to Wilcox where they are equipped to deal with emergencies. Makana has no CT, MRI, orthopedist, cardiologist, surgeons, or other emergency back-up, They treat minor urgent care issues, same as the rest of the docs on the North Shore. The fact that they are vacationing ER docs from Utah is totally irrelevant, and gives the false impression that they can treat emergencies like those seen in the ER. If you feel unclear what urgent care means (as opposed to emergency medicine) please google it. Someone could be badly hurt by this misinformation.
