New Provider at Adventist Health / Urgent Care


Physician Assistant Michael McLaury has joined Dr. Gerald Rogado and Lihong Lin, Family Nurse Practitioner, at Adventist Health / Urgent Care in Hanford.

McLaury has a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences from South Dakota State University and a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies from Union College, a Seventh-day Adventist school in Lincoln, Neb.

Before arriving to the Central Valley, he was practicing internal, family and emergency medicine at a clinic inside St. Michael’s Hospital Avera in Tyndall, SD.

McLaury grew up in Huron, SD, which has a population of 12,000, and is quite fond of the small-town feel of Hanford.

From age 14 to 20, he was a lifeguard at a public pool in South Dakota, protecting the lives of children and adults. He even taught swimming lessons through the American Red Cross.

He enjoys the fast-paced environment and new challenges that come with serving in Urgent Care.

McLaury may be reached at Hanford Urgent Care, 1524 W. Lacey Blvd., which is open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to noon Saturday and Sunday. The office number is (559) 537-0305. For more information, please visit:
