2015 in Review

We’re wrapping up 2015 here at CHAS health, and hope you and your family is as well! We have had a great year in 2015, a busy year, but leaps towards serving our community.

New neighbors.

We’ve opened 3 new locations, Perry Street, Cheney, and Spokane Urgent Care-Valley. These new locations have opened access to high-quality care for thousands of residents in the surrounding areas, and we couldn’t be more pleased by the warm welcome into these neighborhoods.

Making the current locations shine

We strive to have the best facilities possible. It’s part of the CHAS experience is to not only have some of the best providers, but also have facilities to make you feel at home and comfortable as possible. We relocated the Spokane Valley Clinic to its new home on Indiana, and began remodeling our Denny Murphy Clinic.


2015 also was a transition year for leadership, one of CHAS’ founders and CEO for 20+ years, Peg Hopkins, retired earlier this year, and handed the reigns over to Aaron Wilson, who has been at CHAS for 10+ years, a large chunk of that time as our COO, in that time truly helping lead the charge for healthcare for everyone in the communities we serve.

It’s been a busy year and an amazing year, looking toward a terrific 2016. Thank you for being part of it all.

The Force (for health) Awakens!

May the force be with you this winter, here are some great tips on staying healthy from our Jedi Knights on the dental team and our fun loving Darth Moorman. Be sure that these are not “a trap” and this is the advice “you’re looking for” this holiday season.

Urgent Care or Emergency Room?

Why would I go to Urgent Care?

Urgent medical conditions are ones not considered emergencies but still require immediate care within 24 hours. Some examples might include:

  • Accidents and falls
  • Sprains and strains
  • Breathing difficulties (mild difficulties, e.g. mild to moderate asthma)
  • Bleeding/cuts-not a ton, but enough to require stitches
  • Eye irritation
  • Fever or flu
  • Vomiting, diarrhea or dehydration
  • Severe sore throat or cough
  • Minor broken bones
  • Skin rashes or infections
  • Urinary tract infections

What would be considered an emergency and should go to the ER instead?

  • Severe chest pain or difficulty breathing
  • Compound fracture (bone protrudes through skin)
  • Convulsions, seizures or loss of consciousness
  • Fever in newborn (less than 3 months old)
  • Heavy, uncontrollable bleeding
  • Deep knife wounds or gunshot wounds
  • Moderate to severe burns
  • Poisoning
  • Serious head, neck or back injury
  • Pregnancy-related problems
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • (Signs of) Heart attack (i.e.. chest pain lasting longer than two minutes)
  • (Signs of)Stroke (e.g. loss of vision, sudden numbness, weakness, slurred speech, or confusion)
  • Suicidal or homicidal feelings

We are excited to announce the opening of our Spokane Urgent Care location in Spokane Valley! Located south of Mission and Vercler in the heart of Spokane Valley-Spokane Urgent Care is a place where anyone can be seen when there is urgency, but no emergency. We are setup to assist patients with an illness or injury that does not appear to be life threatening, but also can’t wait until the next day, or for primary care doctor to see them.

We accept patients on a walk-in basis and you don’t have to be an established CHAS patient to be seen, that’s right-anyone can be seen! We accept private insurance, as well as Medicaid and Medicare.  If you do not have insurance, we offer a flat-fee based on family size and income – our staff can provide more information upon check-in.
