Providence Alaska brings ExpressCare to Wasilla

WASILLA, Alaska — Providence Alaska recently opened its newest ExpressCare clinic in Wasilla, bringing care that’s where and when you need it to the Mat-Su Valley.

ExpressCare provides convenient, high-quality, more-affordable care close to where people work and live with same-day visits,  7 a.m.-7 p.m. seven-days-a-week. Appointments can be scheduled online, so patients can find a time that fits their schedule. Providers will be able to treat common conditions as well as offer screenings and tests.

The Wasilla ExpressCare is located at 1861 E Parks Highway. To schedule a same-day appointment online, visit providence.org/our-services/urgent-care/expresscare-wasilla.

Additional ExpressCare locations include 1389 Huffman Park Drive, 600 E. Northern Lights (Midtown Mall near Carrs), and 1118 N Muldoon Road (Tikahtnu Commons) in Anchorage and 17101 Snowmobile Lane in Eagle River.

“With ExpressCare, Providence is showing our commitment to creating ‘Health for a Better World’ by increasing access to care,” said Preston M. Simmons, DSc., FACHE, chief executive, Providence Alaska. “We are excited to make everyday health and wellness even more convenient for the communities we serve by offering care close to home.”

Services in Alaska include:

— ExpressCare: Provides convenient, high-quality, more-affordable care close to where people work and live with most insurance accepted.

— ExpressCare Virtual: Patients can receive care without leaving the comfort of their home or office. ExpressCare Virtual provides online appointments with a provider via computer or mobile device with most insurance accepted. Providers can diagnose and treat minor medical concerns, and prescribe medication or lab work, as needed. For mobile use, download the Providence Health Connect app.

If a higher level of care or follow-up is needed, ExpressCare clinicians can help patients navigate to primary care based on patient convenience. If patients are unable to be treated during a visit to an ExpressCare location and must be referred elsewhere, they are not charged for their visit.
