MedStar will be operating a real health clinic to take over the current health clinic at HSD and this will be open to staff, spouses, children, and family members. Staff/spouses can use it as their primary care doctor.
Please, read carefully the message below.
We are pleased to announce the opening of the World Bank Group Onsite Primary Clinic in the Main Complex in Washington, DC on Tuesday, December 12, 2017. Guided walking tours of the new clinic will be provided from 10:00 am-5:00 pm ET. All staff, family members, and retirees are invited to come. Light refreshments will be served.
Establishing this clinic is part of our commitment to staff and to our World Bank Group People Strategy aimed at making our institution the best place to work in development.
For the first time ever, all staff and their dependents, as well as retirees who have World Bank Group or IMF insurance, are eligible for the services provided by the clinic managed and operated by the MedStar Medical Group and will not be charged co-pay fees. STs and their dependents, as well as badged contractors, have two options to pay for service: they can check if their insurance providers are on the list of preferred medical insurance providers for the clinic and if so use that provider, or they can pay cash for each visit.

In addition, enhanced space allows for more patient exam rooms. Located on the C2 level of the Main Complex building (MC C2-140), the 6,600 square foot state-of-the-art facility has been equipped with 12 patient exam rooms, cost-saving and energy reducing LED lighting, sustainable flooring, and an acoustical ceiling containing 67 percent recycled material.
Provision of primary clinical care services will start on December 13 and will include pediatric, internal, and family medicine. The new clinic will also be taking over urgent care, allergy services, and post travel care responsibilities. Access to the clinic will be by appointment only, by calling or visiting the clinic. The number is: +1 (202) 842-1500. Same day appointments will be possible depending on slot availability.
The existing Health Services clinic in the Main Complex (MC C2-376) will become the new Travel Health and Global Wellness unit within Health Services. It will continue to provide pre-travel care, dispense travel medications, promote a World Bank Group culture of health through globally deployed health promotion activities, and deliver expanded mission support to relocating staff. Urgent care services provided by the current clinic will be limited starting December 1 and will cease on December 8 as these services are transitioned to MedStar.
A formal ribbon cutting by President Jim Yong Kim and an open house will take place on Thursday, January 11, 2018. Stay tuned for details in a future announcement.
