The Little Clinic opens new clinic in Colorado
NASHVILLE, Tenn. —The Little Clinic opened earlier this month a new clinic in Colorado in the Parker King Soopers.
"Access to quality, convenient health care is becoming increasingly important as more and more consumers enter the healthcare marketplace," said Ken Patric, chief medical officer for The Little Clinic. "Patient response in Colorado has been tremendously positive and continued growth in the region is a natural progression for The Little Clinic."
A Health and Wellness Celebration was held at the new clinic on Jan. 17 and 18. The event featured refreshments, free screenings and family activities, as well as cooking demonstrations, healthy shopping seminars and consultations by King Soopers registered dietitians and other health professionals.
The new clinic has two exam rooms, a private waiting area, an electronic registration kiosk and a patient care technician, who is available to assist in helping patients with registration, health records, insurance and any other tasks to maximize the patient experience and minimize patient wait time.
