Peninsula Community Health Services’s goal with Kingston clinic: 850 patients

KINGSTON — Peninsula Community Health Services acquired the former Swedish Medical Clinic satellite office in Kingston in March and opened to the public on May 1.

The Kingston Medical Clinic offers medical services in a location just a few blocks from the Kingston ferry and is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 8 a.m. to noon on Friday.

PCHS provides services to more than 25,000 patients in the Kitsap area. The health care provider hopes to “provide access to an additional 850 patients with the Kingston expansion,” an acquisition announcement stated.

Peninsula Community Health Services is a community-based nonprofit organization. It was founded in 1987 as a community clinic in downtown Bremerton and became a federally qualified health center in 1993.

PCHS health services include primary medical, dental, behavioral health counseling, pharmacy services, and health education. Services are provided to all patients regardless of their insurance status or ability to pay. PCHS patients may qualify for a sliding-fee discount based on their household income and family size.

PCHS is an accredited Patient-Centered Medical Home by AAAHC. The guiding principle of PCHS is to “see and value every person who comes through our doors.”
