NEW COMPUTER SYSTEM!

We are excited to announce that we have a new computer system being installed.  We are transitioning to Electronic Medical Record.  We might be a little bit slower than normal as we make this change so please be patient. Our KICK-OFF date is June 9th for scheduling changes and August 5th for medical record changes. 

Thank you for your understanding!

Project Violet

We are pleased to highlight our commitment to research by announcing that for every flu vaccine that we administer in the month of October, we will donate $1.00 to Project Violet.

Our donation will help fund the research and development of new drugs designed to better target cancer and potentially other serious diseases.

This research is being led by Dr. Jim Olson and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
