We regret to inform you that effective 12/18/2020, Zain Medical Center (TriCities Family Health) is closing practice due to unforeseen circumstances. We will no longer be available to take care of your medical needs after that date. Please arrange to have another physician take care of you. Attached is the list of local providers/practice who can take care of your medical needs. For your convenience we are in touch with the coordinators to answer if they have questions. If you are not acquainted with a physician, you may use your insurance company’s provider directory or check with the hospital’s physician referral service. Once you have identified a physician or practice, please contact our office by 01/22/2021 to obtain copies of your medical records. Name and address of the contact person is given below. In the event that the records are moved elsewhere or the contact information changes, then an additional notice will be provided with updated information.
For your convenience, attached is a records release authorization to release medical records for you to complete so that you can have your records forwarded to your new physician. Please choose a new physician promptly and place yourself under his/her care. In accordance with WA State (WAC 246-08-400), there will be a fee for searching and duplicating health care records ($28 clerical fee for searching and handling records, copying charge $1.24 per page (1 – 30 pages), $0.94 per page (31+ pages)) to cover copy and transmittal costs. If you choose to pick up the copy of your record so that you may personally take it to your new physician, please do so by 01/22/2021. After 01/22/2021, your records will be provided by a company (contact person details given below). Patient records will be maintained in accordance with state and federal law, which means that most patient records will be destroyed 10 years from the last date the patient was seen by a TCFH provider.
