MultiCare to Close First Tacoma Indigo Urgent Care

Tacoma, WA — Through the years, urgent care clinics such as Indigo have become small versions of emergency rooms, with patients turning to the clinics to be seen and stabilized.

Dr. Stuart Bussey, UAPD president, told The News Tribune in a statement, “It’s unfortunate that MultiCare is closing James Center. This clinic provides essential care to Tacoma’s neediest residents, including the elderly on fixed incomes. The closure will create a great deal of confusion and chaos among a vulnerable population of patients.“
