The Swinomish Medical Clinic is Open

Medical Clinic (360) 466-3167
Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m.-6 p.m., Friday 8 a.m.-5:30 p.m.

Until further notice, please call the Medical Clinic at (360) 466.3167 to make an appointment. A Registered Nurse or Provider will call you back to discuss your symptoms and answer your questions. We will do everything we can to take care of your issue over the phone or with minimal contact inside the clinic. This is to protect you, your community, and health care staff.

Medical staff are working on a rotating weekly schedule and new front desk staff are being trained. The goal is to keep at least half the staff healthy at all times so that service to the community is not interrupted through the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and beyond.

If you come to the clinic with respiratory symptoms, either call from your car or ring the doorbell located at the back door of the clinic. A nurse will meet you outside and provide you with a mask. If medically indicated, you will be tested for influenza, strep, or COVID-19. In any case, if you have respiratory symptoms such as a cough or fever, stay home except to seek medical attention.

After hours and weekend medical consultations will be available soon. We will get the word out to you as soon as this service is available.

If your symptoms are very serious and/or it is outside Medical Clinic hours of operation, please call the urgent care clinics listed below or call 911 and describe your symptoms. In all cases where you need to seek medical care, call ahead first. It is important our emergency medical service teams are prepared with protective equipment so they do not get sick or spread the virus further.


Please call the Swinomish Medical Clinic at (360) 466-3167 if you have questions!
