Urgent Care Doctor. Habla Español. Healthcare Hero.
Dr. Armida Nunez is a leader in Vancouver Clinic’s Urgent Care department. As COVID-19 emerged, she, and the other Urgent Care providers and staff at Vancouver Clinic, opened the clinic doors every day at 7 a.m. to be here for our community.
When Vancouver Clinic received the call to test employees of Firestone Pacific Foods for COVID-19, Armida volunteered to help with language barriers. Many of the workers and their families only spoke Spanish. As positive test results came back over Memorial Day weekend, Armida personally called to explain the positive results and communicate the importance of home isolation to stop the spread.
Our healthcare heroes have noble qualities that others respect. Heroes are humble, selfless and care for others as their first priority. They go beyond expectations to deliver the best care possible with compassion and empathy.
Armida has been at the forefront, making sure Vancouver Clinic remains a safe place to receive care. Before attending medical school at Eastern Virginia Medical School and completing her residency in emergency medicine at OHSU, Dr. Nunez-Finley worked as a respiratory therapist. She spent 18 years working in local emergency departments before coming to Vancouver Clinic. She continues to have a special interest in acute pulmonary medicine, helpful in dealing with COVID-19 and other respiratory diseases.
Vancouver Clinic is open for walk-in Urgent Care visits and scheduled appointments in all other departments. Patients are encouraged not to delay care. The clinic has safety precautions in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
