MedWest to open Urgent Care Center

Written by 

An Urgent Care Center will open in August at Wal-Mart Plaza in Sylva.

The location of the MedWest’s new urgent care center will in a building currently occupied by Rent-A-Center. That business is scheduled to relocate May 1 and renovations on the building are expected to begin immediately after that, said Jeff Lee, director of MedWest’s Urgent Care Centers.

Urgent care centers are primarily used to treat patients who have an injury or illness that requires immediate care, but is not serious enough to warrant a visit to an emergency department.

The 3,770-square-foot facility has space for eight examining rooms, as well as X-ray and full lab services. The center will create a need for 14 medical positions, including two physicians, two physician assistants, two medical assistants, two registered nurses, four radiology and lab technicians, and two office assistants.

Hours for the center will be 8 a.m. until 6:30 p.m., Monday through Saturday, with consideration of having the center open seven days a week.

Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
