The Teton Free Clinic and other providers that used to be housed in the Brown Building on the St. John’s Medical Center campus have found a new home.
The building, which housed medical providers not affiliated with St. John’s, is a casualty of Sage Living, the senior living facility under construction on the medical center campus. St. John’s opted to not renew the land lease for the building, forcing tenants to find new facilities.
The hospital has since built modular buildings on the southwest corner of its campus, giving Teton Free Clinic and Jackson Pediatrics space at 505 E. Broadway.
“We are pleased to have these providers as tenants in our new medical building,” St. John’s CEO Dr. Paul Beaupre said in a press release. “We feel it’s valuable for patients from these independent clinics to have easy access to the diagnostic and treatment services at St. John’s.”
As of Monday, Jackson Pediatrics was still on campus, albeit in a new location. Patients can’t yet visit Teton Free Clinic; it will open in the new building Jan. 7.
Teton Free Clinic serves people who live and work in Teton County, have no health insurance and are under 200% of the federal poverty limit. It is walk-in only and is open Tuesdays from 5:15 to 7:45 p.m.
