A new urgent care clinic in Jacksonville will feature an on-site lab and medical imaging services.
Memorial Care is expected to open its doors to patients in February 2023. The clinic, which is in the early stages of construction, will be located within the Lincoln Square Shopping Center at 901 W. Morton Ave.
Memorial Care will offer safe, convenient care for patients with minor injuries and illnesses, such as common respiratory symptoms (including COVID-19), ear pain, skin rashes and infections, minor breaks and sprains, minor cuts and burns, and urinary symptoms.
With no appointment needed, patients have quick access to care. Patients may take advantage of walk-in clinic services or “get in line” before arrival at Memorial Care by using the On My Way feature available through the Memorial Health app.
Patients may also use the app to schedule a two-way telehealth video visit for access to a care provider from the comfort of home.
“We are continually looking for ways to improve access to health care in the communities we serve,” said Travis Dowell, president and CEO of Memorial Medical Group. “Our urgent care clinics deliver high-quality care close to where people live and work. Our clinics also serve an important purpose – patients can use our Memorial Care clinics to receive fast, high-quality care for minor illnesses or injuries and avoid a trip to the local emergency department, where the wait times are often longer for non-emergent patients.”
The Jacksonville clinic will be Memorial Health’s seventh urgent care location in central Illinois.
Memorial Care sites are open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days per week. All patients and visitors are required to wear medical-grade masks upon entry.
