Memorial Physician Services will soon open a walk-in primary care clinic inside the Springfield Hy-Vee grocery store at 2115 S. MacArthur Boulevard. The clinic will be the first of its kind for the network of primary care physicians affiliated with Memorial Health System.
Construction is expected to begin this summer on the new clinic, which will be called Memorial Physician Services – MacArthur Walk-In Clinic. It will open this fall.
The walk-in clinic’s hours will be 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The clinic will have two exam rooms and will be near the front of the store.
“Memorial Physician Services continues to seek out opportunities to improve access to the people we serve,” said Travis Dowell, vice president of Memorial Physician Services. “This venture with Hy-Vee will give us another avenue to ensure people have options for convenient, quality medical care.”
The clinic will be staffed by advanced practice nurses supervised by Memorial Physician Services physicians and will offer treatment for non-life-threatening conditions to all ages. Staff will treat illnesses and injuries including cold, cough and flu symptoms; fractures and sprains; fevers; minor burns, cuts, ear, eye and skin infections; nausea and vomiting; sore throats; urinary tract infections; skin rashes and seasonal allergies. Staff will also offer sports, school and daycare provider physicals.
“Hy-Vee’s top priority is taking care of our customers. With the new walk-in primary care clinic in our store, our customers will not only have access to our in-store dietitians and pharmacists, they will also be able to seek health, wellness and preventive care services all in one stop,” said Erin Bailey, Hy-Vee’s assistant vice president of health and wellness. “We are excited to work with Memorial Physician Services so we can continue to help our customers lead healthier, happier lives.”
When it opens this fall, Memorial Physician Services – MacArthur Walk-In Clinic will become the seventh Memorial Physician Services location with two satellite clinics in the Springfield area.
Memorial Physician Services also has physician offices in Chatham, Lincoln, Jacksonville and Petersburg.
