RotaCare Tacoma

Rotacare Tacoma is providing free chronic healthcare at our location on the campus of Pacific Lutheran University. We have a close relationship with the PLU School of Nursing, so this is a really good fit. Our home at PLU offers easy access via Pierce Transit from major areas within Pierce County.

Our mission is to provide free chronic medical care to Tacoma and Pierce County residents who have no insurance or no access to medical care. RotaCare® is a coalition of volunteers: Physicians, Nurses, Pharmacists, Medical Technicians, Social Workers, Translators, Clerical Workers and Rotarians who provide free medical care in a collaborative effort with hospitals, clinics, community service organizations and service groups.

Heading south on Pacific Avenue, turn right on 125th. Continue three blocks and turn right again on Yakima Avenue. Yakima will jog around and turn curve left and become 124th St. South. 124th will curve and on the SW corner of the 124th/123rd corner is the Facilities Management Building where the clinic is located. Parking is in the rear. Click Here is you would like to see a map of the PLU campus.

We operate with three other Rotacare clinics as part of Rotacare Puget Sound. The other Rotacare clinics offer urgent care only in Lake City, Bellevue, and Renton.

Our Rotacare Clinic provides diagnosis for chronic problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. We do not provide healthcare for emergencies. We are not an urgent care facility. We stock no drugs or narcotics. For chronic problems we write prescriptions, which may be purchased at the reduced fee of $4.00 from Walmart Pharmacies.

In addition to our diagnosis and chronic care, we hope to stage nutritional classes in the future to help our patients control diabetes, and take ownership of wellness for themselves and their families.
