The Evergreen Kaiser Permanente clinic is closing Jan. 1.

According to a statement from Kaiser, the Evergreen clinic is one of the smallest clinics Kaiser operates and has seen low patient volume. It is located in the US Bank building on Evergreen Parkway and Lewis Ridge Road and has been open since 2010.

“Like any business, we regularly evaluate how we operate and make necessary adjustments to remain competitive and make the best use of member resources,” Kaiser Permanente said in a statement.

Kaiser says there are four medical offices within 20 to 30 minutes of the Evergreen clinic, and each is capable of supporting members’ needs. 

“It’s important to note that Kaiser members will get letters, and we will work with them to help them navigate to a new option, a new clinic and to transition their care,” according to Amy Whited, a Kaiser spokeswoman. "We want to make this a smooth transition."

Whited said Kaiser members will be able to keep their primary care physicians. Dr. Shauna Grace will transfer to the Wheat Ridge clinic at Interstate 70 and Ward Road. Dr. Maria Somerset will transfer to the Lakewood clinic at Wadsworth Boulevard and Alameda Avenue.

“We thank the entire community of Evergreen for a welcoming, supportive and collaborative eight years in the area,” she said.

Kaiser members who go to the Evergreen clinic can call 303-338-4545 with questions or concerns. A phone number specifically for Evergreen members will be set up shortly, Whited said.
