The past few years have been very difficult for us financially with reductions in insurance reimbursements and the inability for many patients to pay their increased deductibles. Increased competition from new urgent care centers and expanded hours by primary care providers reduced the number of patients utilizing our services. As such, we were forced to empty our savings to keep the clinic operational. That lead to the discussion of either partnering with another entity in town or the transformation of the clinic into a primary care office. After much thought and many tears, it was decided to discontinue Red Cedar Valley Medicine.
All medical records for the urgent care have been forwarded to the primary care providers listed on the registration forms filled out when patients first visited Red Cedar Valley Medicine. Letters were sent out to our primary care patients informing them of the situation. If you did not receive one, please let us know where you would like us to forward your records.
In our place, a new primary care, psychiatric and wellness clinic will be opening on September 9, 2019. Dr. Miller will not be affiliated with this clinic.
We want to express our gratitude to all our patients who entrusted us with their care. We will miss you and all the kindness people shared with us over the past ten years.
As a private clinic, we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason, including, but not limited to:
- Patrons or patients who are rude, unreasonably rowdy or causing trouble - Patrons or patients that may overfill capacity if allowed into the building - Patrons or patients who come in just before closing time or when we are closed - Patrons or patients who are not current on their outstanding balances - Patrons or patients accompanied by non-customers looking to disrupt business - Patrons or patients lacking adequate hygiene (e.g. excess dirt, extreme body odor) - In cases where refusal of service is warranted due to a customer’s presence detracting from the safety, welfare, and well-being of other patrons or patients and the clinic itself.
