"This new Memorial Care location will provide improved access to non-emergency health services for the residents of Jacksonville, Morgan County and the entire region," said Travis Dowell, president of Memorial Medical Group.
The Jacksonville location is Memorial Health’s seventh urgent care location in central Illinois. The newly remodeled 5,000-square-foot clinic features eight patient rooms and a procedure room, plus lab and imaging services.
Urgent care offers walk-in treatment for minor illnesses and injuries, including cold, cough and flu symptoms; sprains; fevers; minor burns and cuts; ear, eye and skin infections; nausea and vomiting; sore throats; urinary tract infections; skin rashes and seasonal allergies. Same-day test results are available for strep, influenza, RSV and COVID-19.
Patients can use the free Memorial App to see how many patients are waiting at the clinic during business hours and save a spot in line before leaving home.
"I’m from the Waverly/New Berlin area so I’m excited we can now offer high-quality care for minor illnesses and injuries to residents of Jacksonville and the surrounding towns,” said Anna Richie, MD, clinic director for Memorial Health urgent care locations. “We are happy to be a part of Jacksonville’s growth and development."
