A nurse practitioner hopes to have a walk-in medical clinic open for business at a new location in about six weeks.

Charlotte Campbell said Coastal Medical Clinic is aimed at serving people with no local physician.

Campbell is a nurse practitioner who worked for 33 years at Penobscot Bay Medical Center, including 25 years in the emergency department.

As a practitioner, Campbell can — among other actions — renew prescriptions, order laboratory and other tests, and perform minor suturing. She noted she performs pre-employment physicals such as for Farley & Sons Landscaping, Coast Guard physicals, Maine Department of Transportation physicals, and physicals for students going off to college.

“I loved working for Pen Bay but it’s nice to be my own boss,” Campbell said.

Coastal Medical Clinic opened about a year ago on Route 1 in Glen Cove but it is relocating to property she owns at 32 Birch St. in Rockland. She plans on an opening date of July 6.

The Birch Street location will be more visible, she said, and some patients will be able to walk there instead of driving.

The clinic is for people who have no physician and do not want to wait three to four hours in an emergency room. Her fee for a basic visit is $50. Campbell said she is not accepting insurance, at least at the start, because of the amount of work in seeking reimbursement from these companies.

Campbell said she plans to hire a part-time receptionist at the new location with the expectation that the clinic will be busier at the new location. Last year, she noted, her busiest day was 20 patients.

A lot of the people she saw were summer visitors who had no physician and needed to get prescriptions renewed.

Hours of operation will be Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Campbell said she tried Saturday hours last year and expected it would be busy but it was not.

Campbell noted that there had been concern from a neighboring residential property that the clinic would be a methadone clinic but she stressed that would not be the case.
