Kaiser Permanente Weather Alert

Stay updated on facility closures and care options

When winter weather brings snow and ice, Business Health Trust partner Kaiser Permanente wants you to stay safe and be able to get the care you need. While Kaiser Permanente is working hard to keep care locations open, some facilities may need to close for the safety of members and staff.

If you plan to visit a medical facility or urgent care center, please check the Weather Updates page before you travel, or call ahead. If you have a scheduled appointment and you don’t feel safe to travel, please call your doctor’s office to reschedule.

Get quick care without leaving home

If conditions make it difficult for you to travel to a medical facility, you have other options.

  • Consulting Nurse Service. A nurse listens to your concerns and gives you care advice or directs you to the best ways to get care. Call (206) 630-2244 or 1-800-297-6877, 24 hours a day.
  • Care Chat. Real-time online medical care from a Kaiser Permanente care provider is available 7 days a week, 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sign in to kp.org/wa to get started.

In-person care

If you would like to be seen in person by a Kaiser Permanente provider, CareClinic by Kaiser Permanente at Bartell Drugs may be easier to get to than a medical facility or doctor’s office. These walk-in clinics offer care for minor medical issues for everyone ages 2 and up. Find an open CareClinic location near you.
