Pediatric Walk-In Care Center Opens in Bangor
There’s a new place in Bangor to take your kids when they’re sick. Penobscot Community Health Care opened its pediatric walk-in care center on Monday. Employees say it is the only strictly pediatric walk-in center in the area, possibly the state. Anyone up to age 21 can be treated at the center. ” Sometimes in the wintertime and during cold and flu season we find it really hard to squeeze in patients to get the care that they need at the time that they feel like they need it. So this now, we have providers that are set aside specifically for walk-in hours,” said Kristen Martin, associate medical director. The pediatric walk-in center is open Monday through Friday from 7:30am to 7:30pm and Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 4pm. You do not have to be a PCHC patient to use the walk-in service.
